Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
  1. Very amateurish question. Could the demand destruction have happened at the same place as the supply destruction? I.e., could the destruction of New Orleans and environs have meant as big a reduction in US car traffic etc. as the shut-in production?

  2. I'm not familiar with US usage pattens, but I recall buzzwords like "summer driving season" and "winter heating season". Could this have played a role too? Won't real problems start now if winter turns colder? (Tough long-term predictions I read somewhere, possibly Wunderground, say this winter will be mild globally.)
