Gas Price Yo-Yo

May 11, 2015

The average cost for a gallon of regular gas in California hit $3.83 on May 2, a 70 cents per gallon increase in 18 days. Something similar is happening in every state.

Experts blame the labor strike in one refinery and the explosion in another for this price increase, according to the Los Angeles Times. In other words, workers and mother nature caused this price hoarding. What hogwash!

If you “follow the money,” you will find the oil companies and rich laughing at us all the way to the bank.
