I feel the same as TBay... "Don't even get me started on gas prices..." ( LOL )
Tbay ... ok... WOW! ! Why is it so much higher than in the US ?
( I have my own answer / suspicions, etc. - just want to hear your answer - what you think )
I think I'd have to stop driving all together, if gas were that much here. Man, I feel for you guys - that's horrendous!! Do they even, out of courtesy, pull a knife out on ya, as you pay? LOL Maybe a loaded gun, pointed at you, from the counter? "Tug" the money from your hand ... act like one of your kids? ANYTHING? Something like that to make you feel better? LOL

Beaver - you asked - -So what is going on in your state and what has happened over the last month.
Somebody get the cheese to go with this whine ... fire up the ol worlds smallest violin, playing my heart breaks for you...
In California - back a few years ago, we voted for some dumb gas clean air tax crap that is taking affect in a few months or beginning of year ... and that law is going to raise the cost of gas, an additional 25 cents to 50 cents a gallon. This is ON TOP of whatever the current price of gas is.
The 'tax' is supposed to go for this or that ( clean air ) but... is ALREADY targeted by other entities, like the stupid bullet train, coliseums and other un-related 'clean air' things. I wish I had paid more attention to the news story ( and suppose I could always, still research it ) to have better details & facts for ya - but that's the jist of it.
CA voted for a gas tax and the tax is not going for what it was created for.
Yeah ... that sounds about right, for "Cali-fu**-ya"
At this point, with the cost of Cali gas ... I am about ready to start walking... bad leg & all. If ya can't beat 'em... get a bigger stick ... wait, no ... ya might as well join 'em.
