Anybody ever figure out why California pays so much more for gas than the rest of the US?
It’s been known for years.

”None of this is due to bad luck or unhappy coincidences. Nor can “profiteers” or speculators be blamed for the surge. The high prices are by design. The factors driving prices them are the products of deliberate policymaking:
  • California has the highest motor fuel taxes in the country – 67 cents a gallon, says the Tax Foundation, using American Petroleum Institute data. Second highest are in Illinois, 60 cents a gallon. The national median is about 30 cents a gallon.
  • Due to “big-government energy policies,” California drivers pay a 37% premium for gasoline compared to the national average. Backing off these mandates would have saved drivers $9.6 billion in 2020 over 2019.
  • Carbon cap-and-trade policy adds more than 14 cents a gallon to the cost of gasoline in California.
  • The state’s low carbon fuel standard increases prices 22 to 24 cents per gallon.
  • As requirements of cap-and-trade and the low carbon fuel standard become more demanding, their costs will continue to add up, reaching a range from 89 cents to $2.10 a gallon.”

I havent heard anybody say they like what's going on with inflation, gas prices, rising crime, etc. So, in my estimation, if one Democrat gets a single vote coming up, I say its rigged. Vote tally should be 150 million to zero in my opinion.

Saw one station at $3.99 yesterday morning but he was $4.39 by evening. I doubt we'll ever see the OP's opening post of $3.09 ever again.

Biden’s Decision To Stop The Keystone Pipeline Absolutely Hiked Gas Prices

A White House desperate to evade blame for record gas prices is now trying to dismiss claims its decision to stop the Keystone XL Pipeline did anything to amplify Americans’ pain at the pump.

“Any action on Keystone wouldn’t actually increase supply, and it would transmit oil years in the future,” National Economic Council Director Brian Deese told CNBC earlier this month. “What we need right now is to address the immediate supply disruption.”


The supply disruption felt by American consumers today deceptively labeled by the president as “Putin’s Price Hike” wouldn’t be nearly as severe had the administration pursued a sustainable energy policy from day one, with domestic production ready to offset overseas turmoil. On day one, however, President Joe Biden followed through on his campaign promise to launch a regulatory assault against the nation’s oil and gas producers in the name of climate change.

New drilling leases on federal lands were brought to a halt by Biden’s illegal executive order, and Biden unilaterally revoked the cross-border permit for the Keystone XL Pipeline to transport oil from the Canadian Tar Sands to Gulf Refineries. Fifteen months later, an unpopular administration desperate to save political capital and bring down gas prices is searching for ways to import Canadian crude after the White House terminated the project to accomplish exactly that.

Transport by train or truck presents far more environmental risks than by pipe, also undermining the administration’s decision to cancel the Keystone XL Pipeline.
