NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - Remember when gas spiked to $3-plus a gallon after Hurricane Katrina? By this time next week, that could seem like the good old days.

Weather and energy experts say that as bad as Hurricane Katrina hit the nation's supply of gasoline, Hurricane Rita could be worse.

Katrina damage was focused on offshore oil platforms and ports. Now the greater risk is to oil-refinery capacity, especially if Rita slams into Houston, Galveston and Port Arthur, Texas.

Rita could cause $5 gas spike

Sorry if this thread has topic has already been covered.

We should just round it off to 10$ a gallon, for bookeeping purposes it would be sooo much easier.

Strange how this world operates...The powers that be wanted higher prices and the lord thru acts of nature is getting the big oil companies what they want. Ironic, isnt it?

I wouldn't blame the cause of these events on god, but yes it is ironic with the whole oil situation.

I've been worried about this winter also.
I don't know if there was actually more flooding in 2005, but it sure felt like it. I don't want to think about getting as much snow as we did in rain.

I said the lord only because to blame it on say, the government would have classified me as a freak

Is it that the Gods are angry or is it something more sinister?

The North Atlantic current brings warmer waters and conveys them up to Western Europe. Without that current, meaning not there anymore, would cause a colder climate up there.

This is bad.

The current is unique in that it transports warm waters to latitudes higher than in any other ocean, thereby producing the moderate climate of Europe and western Scandinavia.

So important, in fact, is the transport of warm water to this region, that a decadal-scale shift in the flow of the NADC can initiate an ice age (Johnson, 1997).
