June 2008: - Oil ~$150- Gas ~$4 Jan 2019: - Oil <$50- Gas ~$4... falling from the OPEC cartel frying pan into the oil refiners cartel fire?
Honda Clarity had an offer of $199/mo for their EV. My buddy got his in early 2018 on a 3-year lease with 20,000 miles/year. He also got the $2,500 CA rebate plus $500 rebate from PG&E. The range on this car is only 89 miles. He gets free charge from his office. Once you factored in the gas savings, he's driving the car for free.
If you want a car that puts a smile on your face every time you drive it, get a Tesla. Get a license plate GAS LOL or NOMOGAS or NO OPEC.... ;-)

$1.69 at my neighborhood Costco here in San Antonio.
MAGA says$1.69 at my neighborhood Costco here in San Antonio. WTF. I don't understand this. Texas has:No State income tax.They have low taxes on everything else.Their property tax rate is higher than California, but not much different in actual dollarsAnd yet those Texans are doing better than us. What's your secret?

o fucking Socialists, duh.
I am getting sick and tired of seeing California plates here because I know that they fucked up their state and are now here to fuck up my state.It's happening now. Not only Californians', but also Illinoisans' or New Yorkers' bringing Democratic poison mentality to TX.
Sorry but the gas prices in California are not mostly due to unionized labor
now here to fuck up my state.
At some point, it may be more profitable to smuggle in gasoline from Nevada than cocaine from Mexico!
Didn't Ted Cruz, Tom DeLay and the Bush family already do that along with Kenny Boy, Joel Osteen etc ? Thought that was a done deal that the state was fucked up.
Gas prices may take a back seat to what happens when some of the +$22,000,000,000,000 natl. debt doesn't get repaid?
Police Auction1976 Cadillac Eldorado: $144 Nice ride. Great radio.Who cares what gas costs?
Gas should be $10 a gallon to pay for the environmental cost, and accelerate the switch to EVs and renewables.
Those are California prices.
Gas should be $10 a gallon
ThreeBays saysGas should be $10 a gallonFor what you could do with it, reliably move a ton of steel with passengers or a load of groceries in comfort and safety for about 30 cents per mile, $10/gallon gasoline would still be a Bargain of The Millenia, compared to alternatives.
ThreeBays saysGas should be $10 a gallon to pay for the environmental cost, and accelerate the switch to EVs and renewables.Carter could have put a $0.01 national tax on gasoline that got incremented by $0.01 every month. We'd be paying about $5 tax by now and a total cost of $7/gallon.Let's run some (made up) numbers!In the early 1970s, an efficient sedan with seating for 5 would be very lucky to get 20 MPG in a mix of highway and city driving. I'm talking about a sedan that could hit 60 MPH in 12 to 14 seconds and carry 4 people + an additional person squashed between the two in the back. Gas was about $0.50/gallon, which is about $2.50 adjusted for inflation. That gives us $2.50/20 = $0.125/mile cost.Fast forward to today... If fuel is $3/gallon, we can achieve $0.125/mile with something that averages 24 MPG. So, basically, a Toyota Camry will easily fit the bil...
Tis true. My knowledge of the California market is far more than you suspect. The past and current pain threshold before people become unhinged is $4.00 per gallon but it can ride up to $5.00 per gallon on average before anyone in politics or their cronys really has to worry. The public whining when the price goes above $4.00 is tolerable nuisance and a cost of doing business but it gives the local media something to do with another round of why are gas prices to high stories.
