    You may have heard that the west coast refineries ran out of oil to refine and convert to gas. Most of the problems are a result of one refinery still be shut down, months after a fire, and (this one will knock your socks off) California had to meet its exports, and that also meant less gasoline for the west coast!

    So, if you live out here in the land of plenty, you are seeing gas prices anywhere from $3.91 to $5.49 a gallon!

    So with that said, how much are you paying, and in which part of the country is this price relevant?

    I'm always glad I'm not in California. And gasoline prices are the least of the reasons I can think of.

    $2.36 per gallon btw

    I've never been in California, except for a few miles east of the Colorado. For that I am quite thankful.

    Good idea. Soon, you may need a passport to go there.

    The Station I go to is at 2.66 per gallon today. (and then I get a 5 cent discount for using the Kwik-fill credit card) - 12 miles the road a Kwik-fill is 2.89 per gallon)

    But keep in mind that the average tax on gas is 48 cents per gallon. NY (64.93 cents) and Calif (60.75 cents) are two with some of the highest state gas tax. (Alaska has the lowest)

    My wife and I drove from Portland to LA on the Coastal Highway last September. California's beaches are gorgeous. I'm glad we saw it.

    I was stationed out there in the 80's. I used to drive PCH on a bike quite regularly.
