    East Coast faces gas shortages, price hikes after pipeline leak (CNN.com)

    That pipeline passes about 20-30 miles from here.

    This morning I stopped at my usual gas station, one of the cheapest around here. There were more people there than usual, and a couple of the pumps had gone empty. While I was filling up at $1.75 / gallon, the manager came out and changed the big sign in front of the station to read $1.85. I did get the $1.75, having already swiped my credit card. :biggrin:
