Skip to comments.Gas Prices Are Exploding In California And Experts Expect Them To Get A Lot Worse
Posted on 10/04/2012 6:41:20 PM PDT by tobyhill
When Errol Emrich drove by a Shell station in his San Jose neighborhood last weekend, regular gas was selling for $4.05 a gallon. On Monday, it was $4.15. On Tuesday, $4.25. And this weekend? Analysts say it could reach a whopping $4.40. Problems at California refineries have slashed supplies across the state, cutting fuel production and raising wholesale prices -- the price stations pay for their gasoline -- by as much as 73 cents, to levels not seen since 2007. And that almost certainly will boost prices at the pump again soon. "California gasoline prices may surge in the next five days, perhaps to levels higher than February's $4.33-a-gallon average," said Patrick DeHaan, an analyst with Gasbuddy.com. "It is within the realm of possibility that average prices reach near $4.40 or even higher if the situation worsens."

Welcome to the social justice paradise ...
With luck, $8.40 will be CA’s lot shortly.
Not all of us consider it justice.
and on election day the idiots will vote to raise the sales and other taxes (prop 30).
As long as it gets there before Nov 6th...
$10 a gallon gas in California on November 6th would cause a political earthquake.
Regular unleaded $4.53 in Riverside County!
I will send a dozen stickers to anyone who FReepmails me their address.
I will send the Excel file to anyone who FReepmails me their email address, PROVIDED they promise to only use removable stock.
Does that mean they'd vote the Green Party instead of Dems?
social justice, fascism same game more pleasant name
Cool. Maybe the remaining conservatives in the state will flee to the north and turn Oregon and Washington into Republican states. :)
i’d bet just $9 a gallon will do the trick.
Actually Obama is sending gas from ‘safe’ states like California to ‘battleground’ states to keep their prices down until the election.
Well, wouldn’t he if he could?
Weird, the have actually fallen a little here.
Barry’s toads in the state run “media” said that the people living in this country love the new, higher gas prices.
Californians need to “pay their fair share”. Send it to $20 per gallon in CA for all I care.
They want Americans to be too busy working to pay for necessities instead of having time to ponder what the Democrats are doing to America.
Now let's have that happen here in Illinois too to teach the f'ing idiots here the same damn' thing!
Yeah, unless you live here and are continually outvoted by them. Then there is nothing pleasant about it.
It's already been higher than that in Chicago. Easily higher than that back in June/July.
Y'all ain't seen nothing yet, just keep voting straight democrat while Obama's EPA runs around shutting down refineries!
Jerry Brown would sure look good in tar and feathers.
There is the possibility that huge spikes in gas could turn safe states into not so safe ones.
Your reap what you sow.
It’s high time that Californians stop raping the earth, get out of their cars, and ride bicycles, no, UNICYCLES. Align their behavior with their voting.
Premium at $4.85 on the way home from work in San Diego. The Harley eats premium. No other price matters.
Has anyone thought about simply dropping the law requiring custom gas?
I saw 4.65, 4.59 down to 4.09 about 6 hours ago for regular unleaded, price jumps of 50 cents in 3 or 4 days here in east&north san jose
I assumed California had outlawed refineries. Who knew?
But if those refineries are the main source of their gasoline and they are in a pinch all I can say is “Tough tacos, Cali. Go cry to Gov. Moonbeam.”
Don’t forget prop 38 which raises everyones taxes over 48K and Measure A (local tax measure). I feel lost in California. Help I just paid $4.49 for gas today.
no on 30 AND 38. Yes on 32.
People in California should put Post-it notes on the gas station pumps reminding people that because of Obama’s policies rejecting the Pipeline gas prices will continue to skyrocket, which is EXACTLY what Obama and his cronies want
Time to move.
“Yeah, unless you live here and are continually outvoted by them. Then there is nothing pleasant about it.”
Call 1-800-GO-UHAUL. They can help.
Thanks for letting me know about Prop 32. I have been seeing Ads for and against it but wasn’t very familiar with the Proposition. Now I know which way to vote..Yes on 32, no on 30 and 38(By the way what are those propositions about)
I’m going to do that. It will say “ Change you can Believe in
Spend it here”
Have I ever mentioned my car insurance rate fell by half when I left California to return to America. It turns out 20% of the drivers in Colorado aren’t illegal aliens without insurance.
moped time.... shoulda come to the Fiesta, gas is $3.58 in NM. ;)
“I feel lost in California. Help I just paid $4.49 for gas today.”
Help is at hand: 1-800-GO-UHAUL
Nothing in californication is worth dealing with the evil cretins that live there and run the state. Not the beauty, not the weather, not the (former) economic opportunity.
Good, perhaps it’ll teach the idiots living there to stop voting straight-party Democrat.
Now let’s have that happen here in Illinois too to teach the f’ing idiots here the same damn’ thing!
good thing i live close to wisconsin
The more people associate the gas prices with Obama’s policies the worse it will be for him. People here are pissed, they even shut down a gas station at a Costco in Alhambra I believe because they “ran out of gas.” Also Ive seen gas prices here locally around 4:50 a gallon depending on the area, its ridiculous yet these fools keep on voting for Obama
Don’t move here.
