Well, once again, we Californians are getting hosed!

Gas is once again on it's way up, 15 cents overnight around the corner from my home.

On the lighter side the news reported yesterday that whites are officially a minority in California and Mexicans are the majority. So maybe there's a gas program for minorities

At least you have the "summer blend"! Must be worth a couple of bucks extra...

When I lived in west Texas, I experienced a 30 degree temperature drop while watching a youth soccer game (1 hour).

In a state where the voters approved a bill (Prop 30?) that sticks it to the high earners, you should not be surprised when the fickle finger someday points your way too.

Expense? and to expensive to live there, all the rich guys have and are moving out.. soon they will charge a tax for the air you breath, watch.. Nice place to visit, but live there? even with all their beauty, no way.. Not that it's any better here, but certainly much much cheaper..and our politicians are not progressive liberals running our state into the ground.. If I would move to California it'll be around the Orange County area..

BTW, yesterday I filled up my NA, $3.59 a gallon and going up..
AND I'm getting 22.3 MPG lately, (according to my DIC)..
