California gas prices soar above $4

Gasoline prices have spiked in California, soaring well above what most Americans are paying at the pump. In some locations, Californians are paying $5 for a gallon of gas.

A number of refinery outages tightened gas supply in the market. The average price of regular gas in California rose to $4.18 a gallon, the highest level since May 13, 2014, according to the Oil Price Information Service, which gathers data for the AAA.

California’s gas prices are the most expensive in the United States: The national average is currently $2.65 a gallon.

Most motorists around the country are noticing gas prices declining or stabilizing, which is normal for autumn. Gas prices typically drop after the busy summer driving season, AAA said. But that trend hasn’t taken hold on the West Coast this fall. …

  1. Gee, and to think that last Saturday I paid $2.24.9 for a gallon of gas in Branson, MO.

  2. don’t ask the why of outages, any excuse will do. just map a timeline through each year this happens.

  3. Californian’s can’t complain, they voted for higher prices.
    Welcome all you idiots to the gas pump of your dreams.
    The price you pay is the price you asked for.

    • Boris Badenov says

      NO, WE SANE people didn’t but the commies STOLE the votes as usual, then they IGNORED what the voters wanted.

    • Daniel Wright says

      No one voted in tax hikes. They were imposed on us. The leftist lemmings in SF and LA are the majority in the state. They supported the tax on us. I voted to repeal the tax. Every one I know did. So point your finger at the right people.

      Not all Californians voted for that! Only the idiots who only vote for Democrats! Unfortunately WE all get to suffer thanks to the ignorant voters!!!!!

  4. TheRandyGuy says

    NO COMPLAINING!!!! CA voters were offered the opportunity to eliminate the gas tax increase and the increased registration fees. They defeated that ballot measure, in effect ratifying the tax increase and the fee hikes. STOP COMPLAINING! Pay up.

  5. And this is with oil at about $50 barrel. Crazy

  6. The tax increase was a Becerra scam who reworded it so the liberal idiots couldn’t understand it. CA politicians and their weak minded liberal followers did this and the wealthy elites are laughing. CA politicians makes more excuses why gas prices are so high but has anyone stopped to think why this doesn’t happen anywhere else. Keep voting these liberal crooks into office and soon you will be one of the homeless living on the streets.

  7. Wait until January 1st, when another tax kicks in and raises the price of a gallon of gas by $.72 ! Watch all the liberals cry then.

  8. And do you think the sheeple will wake up in January, 2020 when the REALLY big gas increase kicks in. Betcha forgot about Moonbeam/Nichols Cap-n-Trade fiasco didn’t you??? Jerry is clipping coupons and counting the bucks ($’s)on his 2000+ acre ranch in NoCal. Too bad we can’t make a Homeless Camp out of that property since he caused a lot of the homeless probles.

  9. Isabella Landig says

    YOU get what you voted for! This and many other serious problems have been part of this swamp for a very long time. It will never change until the the media will do their job, stop lying and tell the Truth about the Dems agenda in Sacramento. (Thank you Mr. Frank for your good work)

    • The “media” is part of the swamp and lying is their stock in trade. The
      same holds true for today’s democrat, dem=media. Their one and the same.

  10. Don’t forget the brilliant voters of California voted to give major nuisance the right to raise our gas taxes and vehicle registration without voter approval read the last line of proposition six.
