Katrina effects to be felt

Rising gasoline prices could be the least of the impact felt in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.  "You will see escalating prices at the gas pump, said Alberto Bruno-Vega, V.I. Water Power and Authority director, told a meeting on St. John.  About three dozen people attended the session called by V.I. Delegate Donna M. Christensen.  The price of gas, before the storm, was $3.15 a gallon.  Bruno-Vega also referred to the high price of oil, implying higher electricity costs could be ahead.  He urged conservation efforts such as cutting back the use of hot water heaters.
