California.... Yeah thats right suckers


California has taken over top spot in a race we’d rather not win.

The Golden State is now the nation’s leader when it comes to highest gas prices — surpassing Hawaii and Alaska, where gas prices are almost always the highest in the country.

KNX 1070′s Chris Sedens reports that the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded is now $3.85. Experts blame the increased price of oil and the rigors of making California’s clean-burning gasoline.

The pain at the pump is pushing up prices on food and other items as well. Wholesalers tack on delivery fees coupled with high fuel costs.

The last time California’s prices were higher than Hawaii and Alaska on a regular basis was in 2008 when the price spiked at $4.61 a gallon


Just another reason to call California home

Arnold does not approve. He says, legalize this, and all will be fixed.

I threw a 20-spot into the tank yesterday and glanced at the gauge... the ****ing thing didn't move.

Luckily, my commute is about a mile.

I only drive about 10 thousand miles a year so no biggie. Still though it would be nice for them to make a law where once prices go to a certain level they drop some of the liberal gas taxes we have.

Hmm have supplies actually been disrupted in any meaningful way? Umm, NOPE! Taking it up the arse again due solely to the traders when nothing in reality has changed. Cool business if you can get it.

I moved to California in 1961 from New York. See ya snow. Could not have wanted a better place to grow up when I was 12-13. Loved Calif. to death. Fishing was great, surfed almost every day, and when I graduated from 1000 Oaks HS in 1967 I got a job and bought a brand new 1967 SS396 Chevelle metallic blue. Gas was 74 cents a gallon and I think my payment was 96.00 a month. I was making 6.00 an hour and had money to burn. THEN IT HAPPENED. Greetings from Uncle Sam. Time to go to Viet Nam. Worse part of the whole thing is what happened to Calif while I was gone. It turned to crap. I went to Lowry in Denver in 68 and fell in love with Colorado and stayed there until 3 years ago whern health required me to leave. Been driving pick-ups since until this year when I finally got tired of putting $40 a week in my tank and all I do is go to the store and putz around. Now I got me one of those Nissans that you only have to put gas in once a month. Miss my trucks big time (can't see nothing from down low) BUT I can drive all over the place on a tank of gas a month. It will NEVER go back below $3 a gallon and it's here to stay. Can't handle going back to Calif. even for visits, prefer to remember the way it was.

SoCal in the 60's and 70's was indeed a great place to grow up. Down San Diego way it was like Iowa on the beach. Lots of farms and lots and lots of open space back in the hills. Throw in the beach and it was pretty much a teenager paradise. The hills are now full with houses. Lost a lot of its charm that is for sure. Still like to go back though.

Back in '03 the Bush Administration told us the Iraq war would be paid for with Iraqi oil. After the invasion they said oh what the hey - let's just not include the money in the budget & add it straight to the national debt.

I paid $4.09 in the North Bay yesterday - here's the sign they had out front:

$3.25 here in Amarillo and we have some of the higher prices in the area. Good news is the city is so damn small you are only ever on the road for 5-10 minutes at a time.

Dang, $4.09....and I thought $3.27 was BS! I lived in Colorado for about 17 years, but have now been in Iowa for about 14....never understood why gas was so cheap here, as it really is in the middle of no where....

thats for a liter tho, and 1 Us gallon = 3.8 liters, so im paying 4.75 per gallon, and we are a net oil exporting nation, i think we are the only net exporting nation in the world actually paying market price for oil, thank god for capitalism.

I picked the wrong time to look into investing in my first personal vehicle with expected gas prices the way they are. Prices up here in Fargo are around $3.39 most places, give or take ten cents depending on where you are at. That's not bad compared to some places, but still is ridiculous.

Taking the bus to work now does just fine and that is only 40$ a month. When I move at the end of May, I'll get somewhere closer to work just so it is less of a commute.

And I'm sure there are no taxes at all on that gasoline to support social programs...

Peak oil. Gas prices will never go down.... they will just go up and up until it gets to $16 a gallon and then people might get serious about sustainable energy.
