Part of the blame belongs on Sacramento. I spent three years working for the environmental department of the refinery in Torrance.Refineries here have a stranglehold on us.

California has special requirements for how gasoline is formulated. It's different from most of the rest of the country.
Don't misunderstand me, there are reasons for why that's the case. Some of those reasons are because of southern California's unique geography and weather, which lend themselves to developing smog in the atmosphere, especially in the late afternoon.
I knew they were there, but it was quite a while before I saw them. One day in the fall when I was driving home, it was a clear day, and you could see the San Gabriel Mountains as clear as anything.I didn't know there were mountains close by until 7th or 8th grade because I had never seen them.
How fast do you go through a gallon of nail polish?I know the price of gas directly relates to a drivers net income, so don't jump all over me, but I still find it funny how everyone complains about the price of gas per gallon when on average WE pay:
(all examples are in US dollars)
3.19 for a gallon of milk
25.60 a gallon for Purell (before the virus jacked up the prices)
3.84 a gallon for Coke
7.68 a gallon for orange juice
10.24 a gallon for Fiji water
19.20 a gallon for Tide laundry detergent
28.16 for a gallon of Red Bull
1,024.00 a gallon for nail polish
I'm just saying
BTW, I just paid $2.58 per gallon in NJ, actually $2.579 per gallon.
