    Facebook is filled with photos from across the United States showing “high” gas prices that would make Californians so happy! It is truly heartbreaking for those who have no wiggle room in their budgets to handle the increased cost of gas and food.

  2. Just keep voting for liberals especially Pretty Boy Newsom and this is what you get. Wait until they take away all petroleum products and put you in “electric” cars. Oh I forgot to mention, we won’t have any electricity either. Yep, keep pulling the “D” handle!

  3. And to think in the not to distant past we had low inflation, real economic growth and, energy independence. At least we have no mean Tweets.

  4. What’s really refreshing about it all is the fact that gas stations with the same logo in the same burg have a forty-cent differential in what they charge you for a gallon of gas. I’m sure the O AND G industry has someone on staff to explain this anomaly to a wretch such as I.
