Oil and gas producers in the Gulf of Mexico, as well as refineries on the mainland, are ramping up their operations after shutting down because of Hurricane Isaac. Almost 30% of oil production was back on line by the early hours of today, up from 6% on Saturday, and 44% of gas output, up from 35%. As of yesterday, only two refineries remained closed.
