California leaders are attempting to force Gas production companies to produce cleaner fuels by hitting them with higher costs to pollute. It's hoped that consumers will pressure these companies to produce those fuels "in the hopes of reducing California's fuel cost. Problem is, even if the refinery's do produce these cleaner burning fuels, state leaders have no plan in place to make provide relief at the pump. Now I'm all about protecting the environment and belive it's time for us to break free of fossil fuels ot better produce cleaner fuels. However to hit California with an avarge 30 to 50 cent hit at the pump over night and call it an environmental initiative all the while have no plan to relive the consumer if gas companies improve is crap.
What you're referring to is the Cap and Trade bill signed in by Schwarzenegger back when he was Governor and became effective this last January. Im sure if he knew the state of fuel in CA he wouldn't have signed the bill.

The problem were having right now (as per the talking heads) is all refinery related. Martinez refinery is shut down due to a strike. A refinery in Long Beach is still down due to a fire. Tesoro has a refinery down due to maintenance. We get very little to no fuel from out of state due to the high refinement costs due to the blends we use.

All part of the price we pay to live in CA!

Instead of being so concerned on gas why don't they do something productive about the water shortage?

I drove to Anaheim this weekend to catch an Angels game from Vegas... HOLY! I stopped in Barstow to fill up and decided Id pass @ 4.79 for 91 and hit a local station. Needless to say, the cheapest I found for 91 was 4.59 :( RIDICULOUS!!

A long time ago when gas was less than 2 bucks Al gore said he wanted to artificially raise the price of gas to 5 dollars a gallon. Currently oil prices are the under 60 dollars a barrel.

Guess what - Its happening.

The grocery store we shop at gives "points" for their gas based on your grocery bills. We generally get about 30 cents off per gallon when we fill up as a result. Premium when it is $2.50 here becomes $2.20/gal. Since it's the store we do all our grocery shopping at anyways, it's a win/win.

I had that deal with Vons but the only local one closed a few years ago.

Saw gas today for $5.09 for premium

Wow, I used to love Vons back when I lived in California many years ago. In Texas, we have Randall's, which is owned by Safeway (which I think you still have in California). I think they operate pretty separately though.

It's $1.48 per litre here in Vancouver and there are 3.8L per US gallon which is $5.63/gallon and the kicker is I can drive across the boarder (20 minutes from my house) and save $30+ per tank and its our own Freaking Canadian fuel. Half of what we pay for fuel here in British Columbia is taxes.

Now, let the bitching continue

And our "great" government here wants to cut the amount of gas used in the state by 50% by 2022. I guess they will do what ever it takes to get the bullet train built

ITT: So much ignorance.

(Source: Native Southern Californian of 38 years who has lived in Los Angeles his whole life.)

EDIT: FYI - the "Prius" and all those cars that you thank for not using gas, are the reason that California and the Fed want to raise the gas tax (because they realizing that they aren't making as much money because those cars don't use as much fuel and are a current trend). The real kicker will be when they charge you per mile, this is coming (California first).
