Wait a minute, a hurricane

Wait a minute, a hurricane or 2 cruises through the Gulf of Mexico shutting down refineries and gas prices go up-up-up! Yet there are thousands of gallons of oil {gasoline comes from/& resources} lost per day getting spewed into those very same waters and gas prices are now going down?????
1. Either the effects haven't yet hit the consumer at the pumps..(I think this one's coming)..or>
2. The gas price gouging wasn't necessary back during Katina to begin with.
While Washington is investigating BP and whom's to blame, jump back a few years and compare.

re: wait a minute....

There are a few reasons as to why the cost rose so high after Katrina as compared to our crisis now. 1)There are far more oil wells than refineries in the US. 2)Katrina took out most of the Gulfs oil rigs. 3)And a large part of our refineries are in the south. It's just a matter of comparing the situation itself not the size of the catastrophy.
