Weather forecasters now say the storm will grow to a Category 1 hurricane instead of a stronger Category 2.

Although the storm isn't expected to damage refineries, refinery owners often shut down operations in advance of a storm. The refineries will likely stay off line for about three days.

Benchmark oil for October delivery was down 5 cents in midday Bangkok time to $95.42 per barrel in electronic trading

Weather forcasters have to build drama into these things and we have to pay for their lack of knowledge!

This story is from Bangkok. I guess they want to rip you off too. Speculators worldwide want your money. And will do anything to get it.

Don't expect fuel prices to drop. If not Isaac, then they will make up another reason to keep increasing prices.
