Really?

People showing up with gas cans without a generator? I doubt this was the majority.

The issue you seem to neglect is no one knew when they could get gas. I filled-up my tank prior to the storm, yet three days after the storm I was down to half a tank. By this time many gas stations were closed and those that were open had long lines. Sure I could have waited until I was down to a 1/4 tank but what if the problem still persisted?

The problem those of you seem to forget is when a product is a necessity price won't matter. Think about it. If there was an extreme shortage of food and after several days you've had nothing to eat would a higher price quell your urge to eat?
