New Down in FL at the moment and $1.999 is the best you can do.
No wonder US produced 3.4% more CO2, even with coal fired plants closing.

Time for a serious gas tax to fix roads.

New maybe a floor tax hike
Put a $2.00 floor and everything between actual price below $2 up to $2 go to a road tax

New Premium here is about $1.60 a litre.
So about five times your cost.

New Lead is the problem.
Lower demand and having to have completely separate equipment, lines, trucks, etc.

But if they'd STOP this IDIOTIC adding of Ethanol to auto gas, I could use auto gas in my airplane. Aside from having Trump as President, if there's a dumber damned idea than using ethanol for fuel I can't imagine what it is. I see it for EXACTLY what it is: YAN way for Republicans to jam money up farmers arses so that the Republican Party can remain relevant. For NO ONE making under 500K/year except a farmer is dumb enough to vote Republican.

You use the equivalent of roughly 1.1 gallons of fossil fuel to create 1 gallon of ethanol that has total lower energy than the 1.1 gallons of fossil fuel you used to create the ethanol. But, you do increase demand for corn. And corn farmers are Trump's base.

New Not cheap, but ethanol free gasoline is available around here in SC.
It's about the same price as premium.

But, I agree that using what would have been food for making subsidized fuel is stupid. Tell that to the folks in Iowa.

New Re: just filled up with $1.66 per gallon gas
For various reasons, taxes among them, prices per gallon in the Bay Area tend to cluster around forty cents either side of $3.50, which of course is why the region is rapidly being depopulated as people flee to Fritters, Alabama, for surcease.

cordially,
New well can you take the one that went to DC back? give her a discount

New yeah it is pretty horrible here
looking to buy a horrible 2400sqft house for 149k, highest amount of govt tech jobs per capita right in the middle of the redneck riviera with beaches, 11 vegas style casinos casinos and fresh seafood year round. 80 miles from bourbon st. New Orleans for a change of pace. Fuckin horrible place for the snot sniffers.

New We live in Northern California…
We live in coastal Northern California, notwithstanding the stratospheric costs, because the climate is clement, the culture congenial, the politics compatible, the cuisine cosmopolitan, the scenery incomparable. I have relatives in Fritters who imagine that California is a hellhole. I am happy to leave them with this impression intact.

cordially,
New I thought the crumbling manse was in oakland?

New A map helps..
From Berkeley hills one can see three major bridges and S.F.; the Golden Gate bridge and the Pacific are both in that scan.
Oakland is adjacent S. of Berkeley so.. Yep, it's 'coastal'.
New It still sounds weird to me that the SF Bay is "Northern California"
~ 300+ miles to the northern state line?!?

But since my neck of the woods is "Northern Virginia", it just goes to show that "Northern" is very relative.

:-)

Cheers,
Scott.
New It's *very* much northern. Just ask somebody from LA. ;0)
bcnu,
Mikem

New Yes, but it's just "The North" . . .
. . and a quaint tourist destination.

Anything north of Sacramento is "The Frozen North". We don't go there.
New rofl. :-)
New it wasnt the coastal I was questioning haaving been there many times its the northern tag
since it seems like it is in middle CA. But Andrew explained it downstream
