Talk:Katrina raised gas prices higher than ever
Hmmmm. I'm in Blacksburg, VA, USA, and gas prices are lower today. They were 3.25 or so last week and 2.95 yesterday. --Aciel 14:03, 12 September 2005 (UTC)
Misleading article title
This article title is misleading. As of Sept 11 (the date of the article), prices have been dropping. Maybe a better title is "Katrina rose gas prices higher than ever". You can't wait days after the peak and then claim "higher than ever" - makes the article inaccurate. - Texture 14:45, 12 September 2005 (UTC)
It is not only misleading, it's not in English!
- intransitive verb: to rise, rose, risen; to move upward
- transitive verb: to raise, raised; to lift, to cause to rise up
Hope someone has the authority to edit titles here!
- You too could have that authority. Just register an account (it only takes 30 seconds) and you can rename whatever page you like :) --Deprifry 16:41, September 12, 2005 (UTC)
- It may have been a while since I took a proper English course, but I am certain that the anonymous English lesson posted above is correct. Therefore, as a registered acct user, I would change title from "Katrina rose gas prices higher than ever" to "Katrina raised gas prices higher than ever" but when I try to edit the page, I can only edit the text and not the headline. Yes, I'm new here. --Dymaxion 17:05, 12 September 2005 (UTC)
- Take a look at the top of the article. To the right of the "edit this page"-button, you see "history" and "rename" :). Clicking there will get you to a special page where you can enter a new name for the article. --Deprifry 17:31, September 12, 2005 (UTC)
Destruction of Refineries?
"The losses from the deadly hurricane include the destruction of oil refineries all around the Mexican Gulf area,"
I was under the impression that most refiniries were knocked off line or taken of their moorings. Serious but not as permanent as the word destruction implies.
