I would post this in ATSNN, but I don't have a good link...I've heard snippets on both FOX and MSNBC that a jet fuel crisis could end up shutting down most airports in the southeast including the huge Atlanta, Orlando, and Miami airports. This could be devestating to the airlines and economy....anyone have any new info on this?

Just had a quick look about airline fuel shortages after hurricane Katrina.

Also found this from the FAA.

Thanks for that, from the link:

Airlines and oil companies are working on plans to supply jet fuel to at least ten U.S. airports that could be shut down due to a lack of jet fuel caused by refinery and pipeline shutdowns from hurricane Katrina. The airports in most jeopardy for closure include Atlanta, Charlotte, Ft. Lauderdale, Ft. Myers, Orlando, Tampa, Washington Dulles and West Palm Beach.

If this happens, it would be another disaster, part of a cascading failure...
