yep in my area, Studio City, In los angeles gas went up 1- 2 dollars in several hours.
they are reporting 20-40 cents. bullshit.
gas stations are closed citing no more gas to be had.

of course we know gas stations arent out. they can go to a certain amount and then the reserve is for police/ER and malitia cars

I have advised every one to fillup today- I dont worry im always on full
just in case stations sell out so they can get to work.
by design i walk to work.

so if trucks cant get gas to deliver food- may be a shortage or huge mark up. shop now.
needs to be done now before people look up and realize this. im already well shopped :)
cept i need new blue sheets with flowers to match my new quilt... but thats a story for the mommy board...

consider there are 7 war shits in the gulf right now. perhaps war to start two weeks befor election to ensure obama gets relected...
ya never know. prep well now... just in case...

Ouch, that is scary. Waking up to no gas would take a ton of people to a place they don't want to be, screwed.....

over there where? Middle east, or California? Both could fall into the ocean not be missed. Oops, did I say that outloud? LOL, Seriously I don't think gas is nearly as high in the middle east. I think they use gasoline to wash the streets. Its cheaper there then water. (I don't know that, over heard a couple of soldiers talking like that last time I was on the base shooting range, yrs ago with my dad (ret military).)

i dont understand how people live over there with gas prices looking like that. saw gas earlier for 3.53 here

If this is going on in Cali, it will very likely spread. I wouldn't panic, just use common sense and prepare. Definitely do what you can for shopping now. I am going to fill our cars and generator cans up tomorrow morning. I'm also gonna hit a couple wholesale clubs to sock away some more supplies before prices jump as well.

But the most persistent driver has been the government's mandate that summer blend gasoline be sold through Oct. 31, AAA analyst Avery Ash told us by phone.
Summer blends? What kind of insanity y'all got going on out there? Sounds like y'all are burning tobacco, but I don't think y'all are allowed to burn that, anymore, are you? :smile:

So, you guy are paying out the nose, when you can even get it, because of a "summer blend" and a winter blend?"

I suppose I just don't get it. Is this some sort of California EPA type thing?

Well, O Great one has delayed or stopped completely the building of any new refineries, not even thinking about all the oil , gas and coal mining he has shut down. IF he gets re elected , you will probably find gas going up to about $10.00 per gallon before he is finally evicted from his over priced rental. Then there is your gov I remember when his dad bankrupted calif, and then Reagan got in. Took Reagan a couple of years, but he did turn Calif back around and put them in the black. After Reagan left, Brown Jr. got in and immed. turned calif back into a bankrupt state. You ousted him and got grey, again, going even deeper into debt. Arnold was too busy chasing tail to even attempt to turn it back around, so what did you all do out there ? Why of course, you voted Brown back in again. Demos only way to even attempt a budget balance is to always raise your taxes.

I am willing to bet, that if you do the homework, you will find that the govt makes more per gal of gas sold then the oil companies all the lefties complain about. Dems spend spend and spend more as their solution to off balanced checkbook. They don't know how to balance a check book. It takes knowledge of basic math. Their numbers never seem to add up very well.

Oh, and as far as letting Cal go down, as Cal goes, so does the US, they are simply the trendsetters.

The only way Cali can drag down the rest of the nation, would be if O' bailed them out. Myself, let em' fail. They have it coming for the irresponsible way they have voted for all the dems over the years.

Trendsetter ? Oh yea, let all the illegals in , give them all the hard earned tax payer money for nothing, give them drivers licenses and let them vote. Hmmm wonder how that will work out for all the Calif. Trend Setters in the long run ?

I mostly agree with you, but when Cal fails, so will the rest of the US. Doesn't Cal bring in all the China Junk that we don't make over here any more? Howe(sic) will you get shoes anymore?

Oh you mean all the shoes that last a week or two before falling apart ? I think the union could absorb the loss of Calif with very little effect. Oh yeah, we would also lose the radioactive fish from Japan, and of course, Piglosie and freestien would be gone. Of course we here in Az. could cut off the elect and water and LA area would be gone in about a week. They consume far more then they supply to the rest of us anyway, other then BS. !

Denton, also they just had one of their largest refineries burn down a couple of weeks ago. It should only take 10 or so years for the epa to give them a permit to rebuild it ! Also, we need to suck the oil out of the LeBrea tar pits and the shore just off Santa Barbara. Oh, but wait , that would spoil the view wouldn't it ? Let em' suffer, they earned it.
