it seems like the man has been using anything as an excuse to raise the price o oil lately. terrorist attack, oil up. America (Haliburton) in control of the biggest oil fields, oil up. Storm, oil up. (Yes, I know oil gets refined in the gulf, but whatever) Im amazed that Janet Jacksons wardrobe malefunction didn't raise the price of crude.
Seriously though, evacuating New Orleans is crazy. The super dome will be the biggest American refugee camp so far.
