    Yeah according to an acquaintance of mine thru a MMORG it the people down there mostly to blame, they will get down to like 2/3rds of a tank and go flock to a gas station, causing huge lines just because of the fear of not having enough gas, he says its a little ridiculous.

    I read that they didn't cut production as they viewed the threat of high oil prices more likely to trigger a large economic slowdown which would in turn decrease the oil used.
