    Just in time for Presidents Day: get ready for the long holiday weekend's highest prices ever in Southern California as $4 gasoline is expected to arrive in Los Angeles, Long Beach, and probably Orange County, too.

    That's what energy analysts are predicting as the average price of a gallon of gasoline in the Los Angeles-Long Beach area reached $3.996 a gallon overnight, up nearly 2 cents since Thursday. That was also a jump of 15.9 cents a gallon since last week.

    That's according to the AAA Fuel Gauge Report, a daily record of credit card receipts compiled from more than 100,000 service stations around the U.S. by the Oil Price Information Service in New Jersey and by Wright Express.

    Not far behind the L.A. area: San Diego is also on the brink at $3.992 a gallon, up 16.2 cents since last week, according to the report. Orange County was also on the cusp, rising 16.2 cents a gallon in the past week to an average of $3.989 a gallon...


    California's average stands at $3.956 a gallon, which is also a record for Feb. 17, breaking the old mark set last year by a whopping 45.3 cents a gallon.

    $4 a gallon gasoline likely to hit L.A. this weekend - latimes.com

    True, on that last post. Funny, when I started driving in 1967, gas was $.27.9 and when it hit $.30 p/gal, the nation wept. Who would ever think we'd see $5 p/gal, mused about. Wow. And down home in Majahual, Yucatan, fuel, at US conversion price, is $.44 p/gallon. Bad deal.

    Not a damn thing.OPECS board controls oil prices,which dictates gas prices,fluctuant on whatever state taxes are applied dependant on where you live.

    Yes we know, Obama sets world gasoline prices. He is responsible for $8 per gallon gasoline in the UK.

    Results for stations around Glasgow, Lanarkshire - PetrolPrices.com

    We better be certain not to re-elect Obama, because he will continue to raise the gas prices. :cuckoo:
