ah, price gouging per usual my entire life during holidays; a federal crime. yet, Bush, Clinton, Reagan, Carter, Bush Sr, Obama, Gavin, Anyone, is payed off by oil. Oil is private, does Alaska have this issue due to its SOCIALIAST OIL? is OPEC real? Are the BinLadens the richest Afghanis? Did Bin Laden do to an ivy league university and work for the CIA? Was Iran an Ally? Are the current royalty of Saudi set up by America 70 years ago as tribal wars so create a fascist monarchy? are Boomers expiriencing cancer and dementia associated with their follies; All answers are Yes <3

are monopolies illegal? do pro market people support monopolies and empire failure? are we all earthlings? or are we so dumb, we are a cast of rich and poor?

what is OPEC, does Russia influence gas prices, or a Rich Texan to go on holiday?

should robots replace rich people; and the judicial system? are humans bias based on biology and sociology? does constipation make me grumpy or a period? or menopause? does a stroke cause brain damage? do we bleed?

Gas prices up Diesel up higher Bidenomics at work

yeah, rich people suck.

More like facebook at work.

Thank you government officials in Sacramento….. job done well ???????? NAH!

rich people should all be sentenced to life in prison, I agree

It’s cute that people think Sacramento can control gas prices. Lol.

Did you ever hear of the Politian’s raising gasoline taxes? I just looked on the internet and found that California has the highest gas taxes in the nation with a tax rate of 77.9 cents per gallon (I suspect its higher than that).

Yes I know about gas taxes, does not change the fact that Sacramento and Washington do not control gas prices.

Want to reduce our road taxes etc? Ever notice all those semi trailers (fedx, redway etc) are tagged in other states, yet never leave the state and pay less taxes per gallon (diesel), yep avoiding taxes so we pay more.

A bit of a price war going on in Atascadero with Chalk Mountain decreasing their prices when the new mega-station opened about a block away.

Competition in this arena is a good thing. The new ARCO station is a good thing. Plus, they sell what Chalk Mountain doesn’t. ‘Top Tier’ fuel.

ya, as long as they don’t collude in a price war. felony.
