Two major ports in the US state of Florida are open after Hurricane Irma blew through the state last weekend.

To the relief of the state's gas-strapped citizens, more than a dozen handysize tankers will be making call in Florida through the week.

Irma drove up Florida's retail petrol prices by 16% in one week. in The state's governor, Rick Scott, asked that tankers receive military escorts to get to port quickly.
