Aaaah, the things we take for granted. Glad things are starting to look up, and thanks for keeping us posted and letting us know you were OK.

The BBC reported that 1/5th of the whole US's refining capacity was offline due to Ike (presumably, they'll be working hard to get it back online, but with all the refineries being 'seaside resorts', I imagine there's quite a bit of damage). Have shortages propagated outside of the area directly affected by the storm?

Not that I've heard of. It's not that there isn't gas here, it's just that you need both gas and power, and a lot of stations have one or the other. Plus, with all the flooding, there's water in some of the tanks.
