    So the price of shrimp went up 10 cents and they raised the price by a dollar, and BP are the @55holes? How about thanking management for price gouging?

    as being a store owner, i can tell you, a 10 cent increase, by the time it reaches that resturants hands can cause a dollar increase. it happens all the times with every vendor i have. they increase .25 cent on something and because of the chain it goes through (shipping, delivery, etc) yeah it cost me over a dollar to cover that .25 increase on thier part.

    it sucks ass though. so i can understand your anger

    A whole extra dollar really isn`t a disaster. If the shrimp still comes from the Gulf I`d be happy to pay extra to support them right now.

    LOL! Shrimp fishing has resumed, and it was actually not adversely impacted.

    This restaurant was just looking for a buck, literally.

    auburnjunky: Shrimp, crab, crawfish and lobsters are basically the seas roosterroaches (I still love how they taste), Knowing that how do we know for sure they are safe to eat ?

    I`d like to see some testing done first. CNN is saying the dispersants may be toxic, I know that crude oil, When it breaks down, Can and does form some nasty chemicals like Benzenes, Naphthenes, Ethylenes, Phenols, Ketones, Sulphide compounds, and others that I certainly wouldn`t want to be eating.

    While this restaurateur may be profiteering, I`d still want to be sure the shrimp and other seafood is safe and has been tested by certified labs of the FDA.

    I think if you capitalize the word it might not work. Once I typed "cockatoo" and it was censored, but "Cockatoo" was not. (I might be totally wrong about this, of course)

    well, rakoon....the price of shrimp has gone up because the area where seafood is allowed to be caught has shrunk, and it nobody else`s fault except for BP.
    Nissan, we`re all sick of hearing about it, but the problem isn`t just going to go away. This was a monumental catastrophe, and to not hear about it would just be letting BP off the hook. People`s livlihoods have been taken away from them, the ecosysten has been ruined for at least a generation, and don`t forget that lives were lost.

    "i think seeing that would be enough for me to leave the restaurant without paying."

    Because it`s not like BP`s single-handed colossal screwup killed shrimp and therefore raised their price or anything.

    The only problem here is... fishing was never halted, and the seafood was never deemed unsafe to eat. There has also been no reports of any mass shrimp death. So how exactly were their costs increased, or did they just see the chance to make an extra buck?
