Recall Gruesome Newsom...


Road Trip!
Someone needs too...

California's nation-leading gas prices are set to climb even higher Monday, when the state gas tax increases 5.6 cents a gallon.
It's the latest increase from a 2017 law designed to raise about $5 billion a year for road and mass transit programs....

Might as well add on Illegal's to that... :smiley-yakkin-pink:

FWIW, Taxes on Unleaded Gasoline, Washington is higher still. 49.4 cents per gallon. CA is 47.7 . (CA diesel is .67 per gallon)

Spokane WA, 2.89-2.99 per gallon

Petaluma CA 3.69-3.99 per gallon

Methinks it ain't JUST THE Taxes....

Ok I found it...

The Golden State has come up quite a few times already for its high-cost gasoline. One of the drivers is that California requires a special blend of gasoline to meet its fuel standards, which are higher than the federal standard. That blend not only costs more but few refineries have the capacity to make that type of gas, which causes price spikes when a refinery has an issue. On top of that, the state has one of the highest gas taxes in the country at $0.38 per gallon. 47.7 cents per gallon

But also, a new gas tax was leveled against its residents today ($0.56/gallon) on top of a $0.12 a gallon increase and a $0.20 on diesel. The Commufornia legislature is a Democrat Supermajority and they don't even have to have a formal vote on the floor to ramrod this crap down our throats! When the diesel tax hit us, food prices escalated as well. The Democratic Party loves the little guy! These taxes impact lower and middle class people the most. Throw them all out!

First, Cal. legislators pass the tax increase without so much as a hint to the voteing public, then when prop. 6 makes it onto the ballot the Dems. put out completely miss information in the form ot TV adds warning of the dangers to our roads and freeways if prop. 6 was to get passed without one word about the measure being about the tax increase repeal. Who was it that said, put it to the voters, they are too dumb to know what they are voting about. Now gruesome has the nerve to say the increase in gas prices is the fault of gas Co. manipulating the gas prices for their own good. he never mentioned the strict environmental regulation put on the gas Co. causing them to put out gasoline which was specially formulated just for ca. which raised the cost per. gal. He never mentioned the high gas taxes we pay, as the reason for high prices increase. He, like all politicians is a liars. He just is better at it than most.

Gas tax was on the ballot for repeal, but the good folks turned it down.
Also the lead ban was voted on and passed by the same good folks.
When the good folks vote it in, and your outnumbered, only thing you can do is.........
move out of state.

The fix is simple. Remove the stupid special blend nonsense so now we are the same fuel as the rest of the country. Repeal the gas tax and tax the oil that comes out of the ground for road repairs. You know California is the only state in the union not to tax the oil companies for the oil they remove. Hell Alaskans get a check because of this tax. No, our fuel costs wont go up-see point one. win win except for the oil companies, their cash cow of California is no longer giving it up.
