    Los Angeles Ca
    A West Covina Mobile Gas Station is charging $4.99 9/10 for premium gasoline. Not quite $5.00 but almost. It's amazing how fast prices for gasoline have gone up in Southern California. Inflation? Oil speculation? Middle east tensions? Who really know... only thing I know for sure is that the common commuter will be paying the price.

    We could make several government policy changes to change that. The price is that high because a collection of government agencies think it should be.

    If you think this is a bad idea, then you need to change the politicians who make it so.

    California is mandated by law to sell specially blended (read:expensive) gasolines due to air quality laws.

    As for the common commuter- ride the goddamn bus.
