As California's Summer Gas Is Approaching $4.00/gal what can we expect from President Trump and changes to onerous EPA regulations? Part of gasolines price increase is largely seasonal, as refiners tend to process less crude oil into fuel during maintenance and are starting to transition to summer-grade gasoline, which is more expensive to make. According to analysts prices will likely climb further as the weather warms and driving picks up. We need to get gas prices under control in order to MAGA.
$3.35 Hollywood and yesterday in the valley it was $3.41. All ARCO. If it aint ARCO, it’s higher and a rip-off.
I’m pretty sure Cali sets their own gas standards independent of the EPA and that allowing cheaper/more or less volatility in the summer fuel will be allowable there.
OOPS! NOT allowable there..
California has its own gas formulas and a shrinking number of instate refineries.
Did not California just add a big tax to a gallon of gasoline?
It’s a CA problem. Here in Springfield Missouri gas is $1.34.

Well, they voted for it.
The problem is caused at a state level so it is up to the people of the state of California to fix it.
privatize the interstates
eliminate the gas tax
let the free market do its magic
Remember the principle of “laissez faire,” you may be young enough to never have heard of it, but I learned about it in school. It means: “Leave the people alone.” And that should pertain to gas prices. Let the market set the price and odds are it will be fair and low when low is appropriate.
It’s for the environment! Anybody who opposes high gas prices are in bed with the evil oil companies. I mean, literally in bed with them.

How much of California’s gas price issues are caused by the EPA, and how much by CARB?
That’s the California Air Resources Board, for those of you in Rio Linda. You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.
Traveled down to Death Valley last week. Saw $3.49 and $3.79 in Bishop, $4.39 and even $4.79 north of there. Granted this is obscure area, but rather high already.
2.28 in East Texas.
Not fair! We’re around $3 at Sams and Costco here in Reno, much higher around town.
Just filled up for $2.47 yesterday on Matthews Drive. Gas will more expensive next week when the PGA rolls into town and brings tens of thousands of spectators. But this is a reasonable price. WTF is with California? $4 per gallon was the breaking point back in the 07 financial crisis.
