Obviously, any Government concern about high gas prices is entirely phony.
If they cared even the slightest, they would LOWER the gas tax, wouldn't they?

(The welfare state must fail because it is contrary to human nature and diminishes the human spirit.)
Don’t forget the sales tax (8% in San Diego
County and higher in other counties)that is applied on the exise tax. Yes, we pay taxes on taxes. When gasoline prices go up the sales tax revenue to the state goes up. We are paying about 70 cents of taxes on every gallon of gasoline in California. The brain dead voters here blame it all on the evil oil companies.

so just buy enough gas to get over the state line, then fill`er up as you proceed to a new home.

(US$ - I owe you nothing. Euro - Who owes you nothing.)
One way or another the gov is going to get their money.
They cried for us to get hybrids and electric cars. Now they cry they aren’t making the money they want.
So, they bump up the tax. Kinda negates the ‘save money’ argument to buy a hybrid.

Enjoy it California. Why not raise gas taxes a buck a gallon. Consider it raising the state of California’s minimum wage. Trying to Detroit yourselves to death? Geez.
