Default Welcome to California

Just wait until gas prices go back up if you think that's high.

I see the controllers of your state are on a roll, those thieves up in Sacramento....My new Gov here is trying to catch you guys with a whopping 40 cent plus increase to fix our roads. This has to be in my 64 years of life the 6th or 7th time i have heard this BS story. It gets into the general fund and wallah, it disappears into the coffins of city hall in Detroit or the Union hall of the State MEA. (Teachers Union) Dems here are no different or nationwide for that matter. Got to support these illegals somehow huh? That and fools never learn...by the way Gov Whitmer flat out lied during the debates on this subject of gas taxes., said she wouldn't. Took her less than 30 days in office to introduce us all to the bill.

Well you see.. BHDIFOTPOTTS see $4.99 and see the 4. They don't consider it is, in reality, $5 a gallon

DAMN. Just to think I bitched about paying $1.61 a gallon for regular back in 2001 when I was at Port Hueneme TDY. That state is ridiculous. I don't know how people can afford to live out there.

One of the legion of issues with an entrenched progressive government is that they don't pay for their own fuel and most of their voter base doesn't have anywhere to go because they don't have jobs, so they don't give a flying **** about people who have to get to work.

I went to Coranado with the family for a few days, on the way back to Tucson I had to stop for gas just after the San Andreas fault, Mexicali area. Bastard off interstate 8 was $5.05 a gallon for regular. Total price gouging ***. I put in only a few gallons to get to Yuma. I went in and said something to the guy though, he didnít give a **** and told me to take off and go somewhere else. I told him to sit on a rusty nail.

Prices vary a lot in SD. Gas Buddy says $3.83 at Costco and Costco is usually the cheapest.

Still $1.40 more than here in Bentonville,Arkansas where it's $2.43.

Only good thing is that the cash economy illegal immigrants and welfare bludgers have to pay the taxes in these prices also.
