Just when the price of gas was already too high...

Tropical Storm Dolly has a good chance of becoming a hurricane soon, and landing somewhere around Brownsville, Texas, near the Mexican border.

The good news is, it looks likely to be a low-level, fast moving hurricane. Yay.

The bad news is, it's likely to interfere with about 10% of the nation's oil supply, and about 20% of its natural gas supply for several days... assuming it doesn't do any serious infrastructure damage. Boo.

Just be glad it's not showing signs of going further north at this moment. That would be expensive, considering.

Meanwhile, the water is hot off of Africa, with a fairly good chance that other storms may soon be on their way... 

'tis the season...!
