    30 cents a gallon is 5 bucks per fill-up for most people?

    The California gasoline market is so manipulated it's almost criminal.

    Maybe we should just stay on Summer gas all year so that there's no 'refinery switchover problems' that always arise to cause the prices to spike?

    True, it's not that much in the scheme of things but, when it's all based on manipulated bullshit, it bothers the fuck out of me.

    For me, it's about $7.50 per fill-up but I fill up about 6 times a month so, that extra $45 per month comes in handy.

    Long story short, no, it really doesn't matter, we could use summer gas all year.

    It all has to do with the way the gas burns and evaporates due to the high temperatures in the summer and what type of additive they use to combat it.

    The summer gas uses a more expensive additive.

    It would be slightly more expensive than winter gas but, there would be no 'extra switchover' work that the refiners use as an excuse to raise the price way over what it should be.

    Also, consider the fact that it's been in the 80's for most of this year in Southern California so, when does summer start or end out here?

    It's always fucking summer.

    It's as regular as clockwork, the prices start to fall and you know with a couple weeks there is going to be some contrived refinery issue that raises the price. We'll be double the national price if this run up is correct.

    Yep. If some dignitary farts gas prices go up. It's always on the ready. Everyday the news points out some unrest and the oil companies latch on to whichever unrest fits the needed price increase.

    I get what you're saying...but I've bought into the whole car culture and I sure a sshit cant make my own gasoline so i am stuck with whatever rape they dish out and I have to be ok with it. The choice is always there for me to go off grid but overall im too lazy.

    ya know gawtdamn well prices will never settle below $2 EVER again. EVER. You get a taste for about 2-3 weeks but it goes right back to 2.xx.
    Once big oil hit that mark, they had us.
