A makeshift carboard sign stating "Gas Prices: Arm and Leg," hangs from a tire rack in front of the Palmetto BP gas station in Palmetto, Fla., Tuesday. The owner of the station, Gary Steinberger, made the sign in reaction to rising gas prices, which says are the highest he's ever seen. Rising gasoline prices, a terrorist alert and the threat of war with Iraq are imperiling Florida's tourist-dependent economy, Gov. Jeb Bush said Tuesday. As of Wednesday, Alaska gas prices ranged from $1.61 per gallon for regular unleaded to $1.99 for premium.
