Huckabee Frustrated with FEMA, Worried About Gas

SEPTEMBER 27, 2005 - Posted at 7:57 a.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Governor Huckabee has renewed his frustrations with FEMA, saying that information was not readily available from federal authorities in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

Speaking on his monthly television call-in show last night, Huckabee said he has spoken with many of the nation's governors and they tell him they did not receive timely answers to crucial questions in the days after Hurricane Katrina.

Gasoline price gouging has proven troublesome for Governor Huckabee, who called on the oil companies to be more charitable in the face of the recent hurricanes to hit the Gulf Coast.

Huckabee said "I sure haven't seen a whole lot of give on the parts of the oil companies.  You can't tell me there's not a lot of money being made out there somewhere.  To make an unusual profit at a time of intense misery, I think it's frankly not just bad business.  I think it's immoral."
