I'm not saying it never happened like this before, or maybe I just never picked up on it. However does is seem like whenever something happens in the news, it's going to cost us more? Practically every story I read, watch, or listen to has some financial impact line written into the piece. Refinery fire in wherever, gas is going up!!! Tanker runs aground in Portugal, crude oil goes up!! Floods in Iowa, corn prices soar!!! Hotdog cart hit by delivery truck, wieners through roof!!! It just seems like absolutely everything impacts prices violently and immediately. I'm sure things had inpact. But was it always like that?
