“Web Traffic Jam” as People Search for Financial News

The internet feel a little slower lately? Well it is because so many people are going online to search things related to the current economic crisis that it is slowing things down all over the place.  Visits to websites such as the business-centric Wall Street Journal and economy-focused Yahoo Finance set new records as the US Congress grappled with its 700 billion dollar plan to stop credit markets from imploding. Internet tracker comScore says visits to http://www.gasbuddy.com, which steers drivers to stations featuring low fuel prices, are up nearly 30 percent and it expects to report spikes in traffic to finance and bargain-hunter websites when September statistics are calculated later this week.
