    Well, thanks to Arco (one of the big three refiners in california) decided to cut back production and expect the other two companies to follow suite. Local station here went up 22 cents today /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    The emission laws suck. However, I can say the smog levels in the area less than they were in the 70's even with more people. As long as I can keep my 71 exempt from a check...im happy.

    It is like that here too. I have Seen gas prices go up 20 cents in an hour. Thats what Happens when we have a President that backs the oil Companys and does nothing about it. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    Doing fine for Me. I don't have to do smog test except when I buy a car or truck. So don't assume that the whole state has do smog every year. As for paying over two bucks a gallon I would much rather do that than to live in some misrable place like Michigan.

    Here's a picture my dad took somewhere around Alameda, Ca. Must have been about 1986. I'm the little kid in the bottom corner.

    $2.17 for premium at my usual station today. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif I think we should be more worried about what is to come this spring and summer than current prices, I hear talk of $3.00 per gallon soon! /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    when I first started driving 97 gas was 85cents a gallon and it went down to 72 cents for about a month. Those were the days
