Skip to comments.Gov. Brown launches effort to push gas prices down

Gov. Jerry Brown ordered state smog regulators Sunday to allow winter-blend gasoline to be sold in California earlier than usual to help drive prices down. Winter-blend gas typically isnt sold until after October 31. Few refineries outside the state are currently making summer-blend gas, putting the pressure on already-taxed California manufacturers. In some locations, fuming motorists paid $5 or more per gallon while station owners had to shut down pumps in others.

...ordered state smog regulators Sunday to allow winter-blend gasoline to be sold in California earlier than usual to help drive prices down.
People are their own worst enemies in this kind of deal, they increase personal gasoline purchases driving the supply down and the price up.
-— How about not blocking the oil fields, or stopping these idiot blends altogether, or resigning. ——
How about outlawing “price-gouging?”
Liberals ate really slipping.
Kahliforneeia! Imagine ahhhrnold saying it! lol
There is plenty of oil. There are just not enough refineries. One or two have a hiccup and it is the end of the world! Prices sky rocket up.
Last I read station owners only make about $0.10 a gallon, as well as the oil companies.
Have you heard, something else?
By that time, it will be Alta California, Mexico. #Reconquista
The problem with that is we are just 4 weeks away from the election and the news of high gas prices is already OUT THERE and this will be talked about for weeks..
Call that guy who heals the planet and lowers the level of the oceans. Reducing gas prices should be a slam dunk for him, even when he’s on vacation.
Good question..KAlifornia? Maybe means KS for Ksansas?
Do you realize this website is based in California?
Oh, never mind. Discussing anything with an idiot sinks me to their
level and they will beat me with experience.
Yah, maybe. I always wonder why with so many good California
FReepers people think it is cool to treat us as if everybody here
is all the same.
I was just being sarcastic about the “price-gouging.”
