Gas Prices Not Rising in Florida

Governor Charlie Crist says
Florida's fuel supply is not being affected by Tropical Storm Ike.
Crist held a press conference Saturday and said the coastal
ports on the state's east and west coasts where it gets fuel
supplies are open.

He said the state' reserves are adequate and gas
stations are continuing to receive fuel.

If stations do not have fuel, it is not due to the lack of
supply, but because of a temporary increase in demand, Crist said.

Crist urged people to report suspected cases of price gouging by
calling 1-800-HELP-FLA. Already there are nearly 100 price gouging
complaints, with more than half from the Tallahassee area.

    That is much better treatment for the residents of Fl. But in Alabama it's the same old story,the Citizens are Fleeced,while the Government (the people that are sworn to protect the interest of the citizens of the state) Fiddle and Muddle around in Montgomery and finally say We're going enforce the laws about price gouging...Give me a Break!!
