From Don Boudreaux,

This morning your reporter interviewed a resident of Galveston, Texas, about the effects of hurricane Ike. The person interviewed said that she went to the gasoline station before Ike hit to “top off” her tank. But she was angry to find that gasoline prices had jumped 50 cents per gallon from the day before. “It’s ridiculous,” this woman opined. “Ike hadn’t hit yet!”
