    As usual we are fucked in CA, just paid $3.91/gallon at a shit station, most major brand places are above $4. The combination of our socialist government and all their taxes and the refineries conveniently having breakdowns any time the price declines always keeps us the highest in the country.

    Funny thing is we have some of the lowest cigarette prices in the country, the station that charged $3.91 for a gallon of gas had cigarettes on special for $3.74 a pack. For some reason ($$$$$) the Socialist wackos are in bed with big tobacco.

    In NYC I just got gas at Mobil for 2.99 gallon. I don't smoke, but major brands are really expensive at about $10 pack.

    $15 for a pack of butts in NY (Marlboros), then they act shocked by the black market.

    I bought a pack of Marlboro reds from one of those street vendors in 2004. Was over 8 bux. Seems like that hasn't changed much in 10+ years.

    I don't smoke, I was pointing out the disconnect in CA. We tax/manipulate the holy fuck out of gas that everyone needs to run their families and businesses but have some of the lowest cigarette prices in the country. Seems like an odd contradiction for a very liberal state.
