Default Memorial Day Gas Prices

Don't want this to get political... but you can always tell when Memorial Day rolls around... Gas prices start to climb with the Summer driving season. This is what we're paying for gas in San Francisco this week.
What's it going for in your town?

You're $1.01 more than I paid this morning. Had not got gas in a while and was halfway through filling the truck and the mower can when I saw it. Almost had a heart attack, last time I think it was about $2.80 or so.

Not all politics. The overhead for a gas station in San Francisco is probably 10 times the cost of operation for say... a station in Elko, NV. Then add in the taxes and Summer blend and it adds up.

They must have just raised it today . I came through Sarver yesterday and it was still $3.09 . Until this week I was going down into Natrona Heights Exxon . They were selling regular for $2.99 and five cents off if you pay cash , so $2.94 .

My guess is half the cost of a gallon of gas in California is taxes.

Hey Ken,

Most of the time I do like living here, but then there are those few crazy items. Taxes, cost of living, politics....politics, and did I say politics?

Unfortunately, no other State holds my Grandkids!

No. Not even close. Of that $4.27 a gallon I pay for Premium... The State only gets 58.3 cents for taxes. That includes the tax for State road repair and underground tank removal. The Feds get 18.4 cents. for a total of 76.7 cents per gallon.
Here's the breakdown.

In traveling thru Idaho, Wyoming and Colorado I noticed they sell 85 Octane for their cheap price. I have only seen 87, 89, 91 Octane in Calif. That would account for some of the difference.

It may not be half, but itís more than youíre quoting. Your source is dated April 2017, which is before the additional gas tax was enacted in California earlier this year, which was an additional .12 per gallon.
