$5 Per Gallon Gas Is A Reality In California.

$5 per gallon gasoline hits California.Nowhere in the Bloomberg article, “California Facing $5 Gasoline Stirs Brown to Relax Rules,” did it mention the idea of Californians driving less to help people offset the cost of $5/gallon gasoline. Governor Jerry Brown is relaxing air quality rules so refineries can produce more cheap fuel and getting gas from out-of-state suppliers is great for maintaining consumption but what leaders in CA really need to do is encourage their citizens to consume less or take mass transit. Whether you drive a hybrid or monster truck, drive less or $6/gallon will be the next benchmark. If they don’t drive less, they’ll be telling their kids stories about the good ol’ days when gas cost $5/gallon… 2 months prior. [Bloomberg]
