    The Gas over here in Cali. is straight BULLSHIT... We get 91 and the east coast gets fuckin 93 or 94.. Yeah I could get higher octane but then I would have to drive to the track and pay up the ass for that. I tell you everyone should have the right to the same octane.. while we get stuck with shit.. The others get bless. And other thing I don't understantd is the price difference.. we pay about .50 cent more or even .75 cents more for dam near the same shit. I tell you it's POLTICS and a SCAM. Pretty soon we will be payin 4 to 5 dollar for a gal. of 91. But I don't care I'll just get a 4 banger or a 6. And still keep my camaro. I'm not gonna fall to the dreaded hybrid.. nnnnnnnooooooooo..

    Ur right it is all about politics, but I read that you pay more because of your smog problems and they have to add extra additives for your fuel.

    you could be right but if that was the case.. then wouldn't new york be paying the same amount. I mean we are not the only state with emission standards. their is like 10 states in u.s. that have emission standards. Also they have to undergo a saftey check too when they get a smog done in N.Y.

    Yea man I agree with you it bunch of bull shit politics. I paid 3.69 for 91 unleaded and people are posting here that they pay like 3.30 something for 94 unleaded. How can there be such a price difference. Heck we should be paying less for our lower octane. My uncle got a toyota prius and he loves it. It takes like 20 bucks to fill up and he can drive form Sacramento to LA and back on the same tank of gas. I wish I had a hybrid will save you a LOT of doe.

    These prices should be illegal imo. Does anyone think we will ever see below $2.00 again?

    Well you can thank the tree huggers for getting clean air acts passed in california, but it's not all their fault. You also have to ship the oil all the way across the U.S. A temperature map showed this in a previous post. I could find it again if you want to see it. It clearly shows the gas goes up the further west you go. You only have like 3 refineries in California if I remember right. So you have to ship most of it in. You also have higher taxes on crude oil and I don't know why. What pisses me off is that it only costs the saudis $5 a barrel to bring it out of the ground and we say that we are paying 70-80 a barrel. What's with the huge price difference? Well we are simply getting screwed by our own government. I use to be a bush fan but I think he's part of it cuz he use to be in the oil business himself and he could easily have money in exxon stock. If you haven't heard of this company well....they made world record 8 billion dollars in 3 months. Just google exxon and you can find out everything about. GAS is now just another taxation that the government can control. Pretty sick isn't it....I heard Schwarzenegger bought a hydrogen hummer, what a stud!

    I dont know if thats the reason because if i'm not mistaken high octane burns cleaner

    Remember about a year ago when regular hit $ 3.00 gallon & some genius put on the internet to just stop buying ( EXXON/MOBILE ) & the price would come down ? Well guess what, it fuckin did. All the way down to $ 1.99 a gallon down here in the south. That was just about 3 or 4 months ago.When nobody buys from the biggest giant in the oil business they have to drop their profit margin and when they do all the little guys have to follow suit. So lets get with it racers. If just a few of us would e-mail this to 10 other people believe me ,it won't take long so pass the word people. Believe it or not WE, the consumers, are the ones who can control the price at the pump !

    one reason it could be is because when a gas station gets filled.. the price untill they refill is set based on what the previous truck load was bought for.. could just be that one had just been filled up at the new price.. but yes big diff... hope you went to the lower one!!
