Stop exporting 350,000bpd of refined gasoline and use it for these make believe problems-and then stop with the frack and shale oil because it costs three times more than middle east oil to develop.

West Coast may see gas price jump: refinery outages? Three refineries are down at the same time? WHY? It's almost like Big Oil has something in mind for the supply of fuel and prices at the pump!
Take care of the domestic fuel market first and above all else before exporting and selling fuel or natural gas to other countries!
Local fuel prices have come down slightly, I hope they continue to lower fuel prices.
Drive vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

Can't wait! First the power prices jumped because the moron-elites decided to force the shut down of our nuke plant and now gas.

We're not paying enough taxes in this state though...just ask Sac-town!

California mandates a special gasoline blend, so oil companies can't just truck in more from other states if there is a shortage.
