    @OilandEnergy If you are going to compare with retail gasoline price, you have to compare apples to apples. Need to strip out cost from carbon programs (LCFS, CAP&TRADE, RFS) and motor fuel taxes, the price of CA gasoline would be around $1.45/gal! This is often overlook & it’s a huge diff.

  • From EtagerL:

    Who came up with $ 7.15 since an hour when gasoline price was .50 a gallon at the pump…Now it is over $ 4, but $ 7.15 minimum wage is still in effect today..is that crazy ? AbsolutelyThis is just an example.
