1: Special formula gas that segregates the CA market form the rest of the nation.
2: Charges sales tax on gas.
3: One of the highest gas excise taxes in the US.
4: Hidden carbon tax on gas.
Pa has highest gas tax in the country not CA and won’t get anywhere near $4 a gallon
$2.50+ a gallon for tax.
Well they are getting exactly what they have been asking for. I am so happy for them.
They can send thank-you tweets to Governor Moonbeam.
Likewise a CA ex-pat (2011).
You have to love CA — they love the poor people so much they pass THE MOST REGRESSIVE TAX THERE IS.
CA (So Cal at least) has no public transportation to speak of. So how do the working poor get to work? THEY DRIVE.
But CA is now talking about stealing Corp tax breaks at the point of a gun, so I guess everyone gets screwed.
So glad I left, even if I do miss the beach and the weather.
Bet they are proud to be #1!
Gas prices in general have been higher the past year over the year before. It wouldn’t surprise me if we see 3.50 to 4.00 by summer and I’m not in CA or PA or either coast.
And if it doesn’t reach $4 a gallon the legislature will call a special session just to raise taxes until it does /s
Actually I am surprised that the state does not set a minimum price per gallon regardless of what the suppliers set the price as. Anything over what the suppliers set goes to the state.
I once read a small book titled Coup d’état. It basically explained how and why they happened.
One of the reason is taxes. There is no magic level where a Coup is inevitable but there is a real limit. When it is reached the people will revolt.
California is a one party state. They have fixed it so only Democrats can win. They believe they can do pretty much anything they want and the media will cover for them.
Will hire gas prices be the straw that brings the Democrats down? Who knows. What is known is that nothing goes on forever. While the rest of the country enjoys prosperity, California is becoming a third world country full of Mexicans wanting to retake California for Mexico.
We are indeed living in interesting times.
It has been so long ago, but this may be the book I read years ago
do you pay sales tax on top of the gas tax??? Calie does
The gas tax plus .36 a gallon sales tax .13 a gallon on gasoline is .49 a gallon total in CA
PA is .58 cents a gallon Trust me, PA has the highest tax on gas in the country no matter how you slice it.
Its not even close
I guess their friends in Mexico have forsaken them.
CA will raise taxes and cause gas to go up. The media will rush to CA, waiting feverishly by the signs of gas stations, with cameras ready, for the first number that begins with 4, and they will blame it on Trump.
Still cheaper than their coconut water.
Gas always goes up during holidays and the summer.
And if it doesnt reach $4 a gallon the legislature will call a special session just to raise taxes until it does /s
= = =
Maybe not so much /s.
CA raised the gas tax when the gas price was at a low.
So not so much a shock for customers.
If it's Brown, flush it down!
dang that is high!!!
