Gas jumps above $6 a gallon in Los Angeles
· Sep 21, 2023 ·

Yo, California, you doing okay out there?

Just checking.

The rest of us? We're doing pretty okay, but you're giving us a great preview of what it will look like when we get that Green New Deal at the federal level, with your outrageous taxes on gasoline.

Los Angeles County drivers have been experiencing more pain at the pump recently as gas prices have surged past $6 per gallon this week.

As of Tuesday, the average price for a gallon of gas in L.A. County had reached $6.03, according to AAA. Ventura County's average price sits at $6.00 per gallon and Orange County's at $6.02…

Before leaping to more than $6, the average was $5.62 late last week in the Los Angeles-Long Beach metro area.

The cause of the surge: higher global oil prices, said Auto Club senior public affairs specialist Anlleyn Venegas.

Don't forget the extra dollar per gallon in taxes (approximately). That might have something to do with it.

Maybe, Governor Newsom, you could call up President Biden, tell him to hit you up with some petroleum from the strategic reserve. I bet he'd cut a deal with you if you promise not to run for president in his place next year.

Just an idea.

Anything to bring gas prices down in the great state of California (which everyone seems to be fleeing).
