I have been through several hurricanes here in Florida and in North Carolina starting from the late 80's. Stay away from the beaches and coastline at least a day in advance. Flooding from excessive rain will be the worst part for drivers. Depending on where and how the hurricane hits Florida will determine how it will affect us on the roads. We are already having shortages of drinking water in some areas. I suspect we will have shortages of gasoline especially if we have power outages so fill up now and stay filled up if you can. Gas supply is already having problems because of Huston being hit by Harvey. My guess is some areas will run out. Err on the side of caution and stay out of the bad rain when it comes. It may take some time after the rain stops for the roads to be safe.

Duh

Gas will be either $4 a gallon here (Not worth Ubering) or will be sold out by the weekend. Uber On....
Not here in Florida....

It is around $2.69 most places...

Just make sure if you drive...

To keep it at least half full..

And only drive a high water vehicle...

My SUV will do at least a foot or better...

I have rescued many a flooded driver...

We are under a state of emergency here...

That should keep a cap on prices...

I do not see the ridicularity. A novice driver asked a valid question. If we confirm Hurricane Irma is coming to my town, I'm closing shop and deadheading North.
Yes aa novice driver asked a question and seasoned drivers told him, it's not worth the risk or the money. Especially at 65 cents a mile. Gas by next week will cost close to 4 dollars a gallon.

Just for everyone's info: Pinellas and Hillsborough county schools has already announced closure Thursday and Friday. If that means something to you, plan accordingly. If not, carry on and be safe.
