When you here the power companies asking to cut back on your air conditioning to prevent power outages, I think of the gas prices because there is no electric power for more electric cars.

The national average price as of July 18 is $4.52 for regular and $6.17 here in SLO County. So, we pay 37.5% more for the privilege of residing in the People’s Republic of California.

Gas price goes up 25 cents in a day then later comes down 2 cents in a week and everyone is excited saying gas prices are dropping. No they really aren’t as they should not of increased that much anyway. When gas gets around $5 a gal it will start to level off and that will be the new norm for a gal of gas
