Money doesn't grow on trees



Money really does make the world go round. If you were caught up in that gas frenzy this past weekend — you who you stood in line with tens of cars, waiting to pump gas before the prices went up any higher with Hurricane Ike's approach — you know this to be true.

OK, resist the urge to panic. David McPherson from ABC News has this story to help you breathe easier.
