Drivers might want to top off their tanks early before hitting the road for Labor Day weekend.
Consumers will likely face higher prices at the pump during the busy holiday period as Tropical Storm Gustav swirls toward the Gulf of Mexico on a path that could disrupt energy production. Any damage to oil and gas facilities — especially along the vulnerable Gulf Coast — could send retail gas prices spiking back above $4 a gallon, analysts say.
But don’t gas prices usually rise around Labor Day?

why beg them to take it?
The WFP’s regional director, Tony Banbury, directly appealed to Myanmar’s military leaders in an interview with Associated Press Television News.
“Please, this food is going to people who need it very much. You and I, we have the same interests,” Banbury said. “Please release it.”
And why trust them to deliver it themselves, when they’ve already shown they won’t.
Myanmar’s military leaders seized aid shipments headed for cyclone survivors and told the top U.S. diplomat there Friday that they’re not ready to let in American aid workers despite warnings the country is on the verge of a medical catastrophe.
Myanmar says it will accept aid from all countries, but prohibits the entry of foreign workers who would deliver and manage the operations. The junta is not ready to change that position….
Hey, it’s their country.
