Will you look at all the freaking oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico! Via Jalopnik, this graphic shows the current projected path of the hurricane brought to you by the National Weather Service superimposed with a map of oil rigs and platforms in the Gulf of Mexico from GeoCommons.

The point of the article is to let you know you may want to fill up your gas tanks now, just in case Issac takes out some oil rigs, as historically, this causes gas prices to shoot up higher than they already are. But I'll recall this graphic each and every time I hear someone has once again uttered "Drill, baby, drill!"
