      Here in San Jose the cheapest I have seen it today was $4.59 a gallon. Do you think gas will hit $6 or more?

      Hell, I just filled up for $3.52. $35 fill up, Yaris was thirsty today.

      So yeah, IF gas jumped an entire $2.48 overnight, I'd be a little pissed.

      Paid $4.99 tonight.
      And according to the need for summer blend till the end of this month, I could see pricing get to $6 in LA/OC and Bay Area

      Wow, that is ridiculous. It's still in the mid $3 range in NC:

      $3.38 here in Houston, $3.97 back home on Long Island, $4.89 in NYC.

      Give it a year, we'll see mid-$5 marks across the country, then it'd slowly creep its way up to $6.


      It will happen, just a question of when.

      Yep. You can't tell that to people that believe we can drill our way to cheap oil though. They firmly believe it's impossible, even though they've done zero research and are oblivious to the fact that all the oil recovery techniques we're using now are incredibly more expensive than it used to be a few decades ago. It's worse when you tell them there's no shortage of oil, just a limit on how much people are willing to pay for it. They only hear the first part.

      Naturally.


      What people also fail to realize that we have the cheapest gas prices of any western country. Toss American SUVs and pick-ups into the middle of the UK, Norway, Sweden, Germany... anywhere in Europe, and they'll be sold quick.


      Manufacturers should start working on selling those little 1.0L little zippity cars here in the US market, because they'll be a market for them in the near future.

      Not in 2012, and CA is the exception here. Elsewhere it is nowhere near as bad as there, with the national average at least a dollar to a dollar fifty less per gallon than CA. In my area, it's sub 4 and dropping for the upcoming winter season, as expected.

      Prices in CA will drop soon. This is temporary.

      Gas prices in california are terrible. State gas tax?

      Yup. $.35/galon. One of the highest in the nation.

      Gas is already something like 5.50$ in Montreal. 6$ will only be a matter of time

      I spend more a year in gas at prices about half of what you are paying.
