Gas prices


The spike in gas prices during the holidays appears to have ended, the average price for a gallon of gas in San Luis Obispo County dropped five cent during the past week to $4.82, according to figures from AAA.

While prices in SLO County dropped, most of California and the United States saw an increase in costs. The average price of gas in California jumped 14 cents during the past week to $4.42 a gallon.

The national average gas price increased 20 cents to $3.30 a gallon during the past week.

“As we head toward February, pump prices will likely dip, barring any jolt in the global oil market,” said Andrew Gross, AAA spokesperson. “But it is likely that the national average prices we saw heading in to Christmas may have been the lows for this winter.”

SLO County currently has the fourth highest price for gas in the state. Listing the highest average price, Mono County’s price for a gallon of regular gasoline this week is $5.83.

Everyone please stop with the personal attacks.

So, we were charged 54 cents per gallon more than the state average.

“So, we were charged”

By a publicly trade corporation who can charge whatever they want, but you can pretend it’s the “bad gov” fault, if that’s what you are into.

Your “good government”, charged over $1.19 per gallon of gasoline, in taxes and fees (fees are paid by the individual station, not the corporate), on top of the 8.75% tax for San Luis Obispo (7.25% is SLO county average) . These excessive taxes are the highest in the nation for gasoline.

The publicly traded corporation can, indeed, charge whatever they want, but if they want to stay in business, they will charge only that amount that can be tolerated by consumers, after the “good government” steals what it can.

The publicly traded corporation can, indeed, charge whatever they want.

It’s our government, you get one vote, don’t like what we did, move.

Ja! Love it or leave it! Ist es nicht so, Fritz?

People (like me) came here for a change, just like other leave for a change.

Better than pointless complaining that does nothing?

People complaining about the homeless not taking action does nothing.

Just like complaining about gas prices does not change anything.

But repeating some tired slogans will fix everything. /s

Ok, let me rephrase it. We paid 54 cents per gallon more than the average Californian to a public traded corporation. Happy?
