    by Dad29 @ Dad29: California Gas Facts the MSM Doesn't Mention

    Since the news about $5.00++ gas prices in California came out, I've thought that Obozo could lose that State. Turns out that there's something to that.

    ...California has its own special blend of gasoline for environmental reasons that are now largely obsolete. This means that California can’t use the gasoline blends sold in Oregon, Nevada, or Arizona, which means that a refinery shortage here can’t be remedied by the usual means of bringing in more supply from somewhere else.

    But President Obama could order the EPA to waive the gasoline regulations, and allow out-of-state gasoline to be transported and sold in California, delivering at least 10 to 20 cents a gallon of price relief, and perhaps much more.

    The Smartest President Evaaaahhhhh! hasn't figured this out yet?

    Dad29 slept through American Government in high school. Did you too?

    The President of the United States does not have the power, the authority or the right to step in and "waive" a state law.

    Possibly true excepting the interstate commerce clause but that might still cost Obama the election.

    Gas Prices May Drop 50 Cents...
    :eusa_clap:
    Gas prices could soon drop 50 cents a gallon
    Oct 20, 2012 - Early fall run-up in gasoline prices is fading fast. With inventories rising and demand slowing, wholesale gas prices are plunging. Consumers should see some major price cuts at the pump within weeks. Figure an average of $3.35 next month

    I got gas day before yesterday, at $5.19 a gallon. If it drops 50 cents, it's not good enough. In California, we know that the reason for the high gas prices is because of the EPA and the AQMD. If Jerry Brown had not issued an order to the EPA and AQMD to issue the permits to put the Exxon refinery back on line, it would be up to $6.00 a gallon by now.
