Things like this CAN be blamed on whoever closed all the oil refineries.....cheap gas made this country great...IMO....and it could be that way again

DONALD TRUMP.....plain and simple....a business man....not a POS lawyer....he has even talked about the need to reopen many of those refineries
"If we [FBI] recommend [idicting], we literally hand over documentation implying the entire government is involved in treason at the highest levels and everyone is about to duck and cover, as well as some sensitive details of SAPs which would obliterate national security."

Get ready for a new oil low.


The bottom may still lie ahead, as the market remains "massively oversupplied," the International Energy Agency said Friday.
The report noted that Iraqi oil output was more than 4 million barrels a day -- an all-time high.


The IEA, which monitors energy market trends for the world's richest nations, said global oil supply has surged an additional 550,000 barrels a day in June, rising in both OPEC and non-OPEC countries.
OPEC supply rose by 340,000 barrels a day in June to its three year high of 31.7 million barrels a day. That means the cartel is producing 1.7 million barrels more than the official target OPEC ministers agreed to last month.

WHY IS GAS 4.71 A GALLON IN SOCAL? when there is a glut of oil?

and 53 a barrel? barrel = 42 gallons
4 x 42=162-53= 109 profit?

why dont you go ask the gas station and tell us..

You dont get 100% gasoline from a barrel of oil to start, that is crude oil, not refined gasoline.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 68806922


True, but you actually end up with more than 42 gallons of gasoline and other refined products, out of a 42 gallon barrel of reasonable crude.

Refinery Problems (most likely).

Because of "Clean Air" requirements Southern California uses a SPECIAL blend of gasoline not used anywhere else in the United States. Because of that Southern California can NOT import gasoline made to the standards, even the normal "Clean Air" standards that the rest of the US uses.

Only a few refineries, mostly if not all physically located on the west coast, make that type of gasoline. When a refinery in California has a problem and has to stop production (fire, equipment breakage, etc.) it isn't long before there is a huge shortage of gasoline that can actually be sold in Southern California.

Southern California refinery problem ... > shortage of California usable gasoline ... > supply demand shortfall on the supply side ... > price hike that cuts usage until the supply issue resolves itself.

Chicago sometimes runs into the same problem, but with Chicago those in the burbs can actually drive to just outside the area where their "special blend" of gasoline is required to be sold and fill up with the standard gasoline blend that is sold in most of the country, and then drive home so the price spikes don't get to be ridiculous.

Driving around southern California I was looking for Gas under 3.60 a gallon...

Orange County wakes up to shock of $4.35 and climbing: Gas prices soar at independent stations
Orange County motorists blinked Friday and saw gas prices top $4 a gallon at some of their neighborhood gas stations.

At OC Gas on Grand Avenue in Santa Ana, prices shot up to $4.35 from $3.27 on Wednesday.

Frank Zamarripa of Santa Ana was shocked when he saw the prices. The 78-year-old’s daily drive involves shuttling his great-grandchildren around town.

“The price went up real bad. Whose fault is it? Let’s blame somebody,” he joked. “What can we do?”

Good catch OP

Wow, just filled up here in AZ today for $2.64/gal.

I wonder if this hike is just in Cali or nationwide?

Similar for me in TN. I think I paid about $2.70 last night to fill up the motorcycle. I'll take the truck out to fill up later today and report back this afternoon.

TPTB want to "depopulate" California. One factor would be cost. Raise the cost of everything, and people will give up and leave. It would be a reverse of the 1930s. One of the most difficult increases would be the cost of gasoline. If you live in CA, you probably have to have a car...because mass transit is not available in most CA burgs.

Yes, and Obama's manipulation of the supply not only harmed Russia, but it also destroyed many of the budding American refineries that were just starting to get a footing in the market. Just take a look at the American class 1 railroads to see how bad the crude shipments have fallen since Team Obama and the House of Saud conspired to destroy American crude.
