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.
