    It went up to 3.09 here in Columbus, but I saw it as high as 3.13 per gallon.

    Atlanta panic was in full force last night. I actually stopped on my way into work yesterday morning, filled up my tank at $2.79.

    However, my drive home took forever, because I pass 9 gas stations on my way home. One was totally closed. One was up to $3.49 for regular gas. The lines were 20-30 cars deep in all directions. Ridiculous to the extreme.
    Nothing to countdown to, so just smile and be happy everyday!

    I filled up yesterday morning (3 gallons at $2.79) because the owner of the station I frequent (morning caffiene) told me he was raising the price but would wait for me to top off my tank. It is now $3.29.

    Yes, the panic from ATL spread to Augusta GA too. The traffic was awful trying to get home yesterday because every gas station had cars wrapped around trying to get gas! It was insane!!! I think the highest I saw was 3.49, but this morning I saw 2.88 at a BP.

    Yesterday morning, on one corner, it was $2.99 but across the street was $2.59. By the end of the day everything here was $2.99. very once in while you might see a $2.79 but I think they just haven't changed the sign. I think that if it goes up $.40 in a few hours, there might be a little price gouging going on there. How high do you think it will get?

    $2.61 at the Sunoco across from where I live, $2.99 at the 7-Eleven down the street, and $2.79 at the Hess at Magic Kingdom. I saw on the news there are places as high as $4.50 per gallon.

    On 535 in Lake Buena Vista it was $3.10!

    Let me tell ya'll what happened yesterday. I live about 40 min. outside of "HOTlanta" and when I went into my children's middle school , there were 4 parents talking to 2 admin. in the entrance way telling them that they needed to close the school early and go fill up their tanks...NOW! I got angry to the point that I confronted the parents and told them that because of people like them, others will panic and then there will be a shortage. I was lucky that my husband and I filled up our tanks on Sun. night, before the hurricane hit, at $2.48. I still have 7/8 of a tank left. With the distance that I drive and the tank that is in my car, a full tank can last me about 2 weeks.
