fuel has gone up about 60¢ since the first of the year in this horrible state (kommifornia) and I feel no safer
I like how the gov't says the cost will
be less than a penny a gallon
but the oil companies are already
saying 6 to 9 cents.
At least there's fresh air.
when they say "6-9 cents" they really mean 10-18 cents
California gasoline always goes up as they switch from winter to summer blends in February/March
The Tier 3 thing is bullshit because it will make potentially millions of engines obsolete and unable to be run. We are already facing institution of Tier IV CARB in 2014 here and that could take thousands of otherwise well maintained trucks off of the road because they don't have the latest technology under the hood. I'm guessing the EPA didn't factor in the sudden jump in scrapped vehicles into their pollution estimates. Not to mention these trucks will just get sent to Mexico and the smog will blow over the border from Juarez and Tijuana.
Hope they declare War on Smogs. For the children.
prices went up all over the country, not just here and never this much and as fast
plus the new fuel tax coming here this summer!!!
I can't speak for other markets, but I can assure you that spiking California gas prices in Feb/March is nothing new. And it spiked faster last year, of course we were dealing with Arab Spring and the Libyan bullshit at the time.
Yup. I think we Californians will be paying about $0.80/gallon in taxes now.
