Here in California USA the high price is caused by the lack of new refineries(none built in over 40 years and a few closed.) so every time one has a
problem the price jumps 50+ cents a gal
Plus the cost of clean additives that are mandated to be put in our fuel like up to 10% alcohol(20 years ago alcohol was used in cheap gas and once it
was mandated the cost went up so now its the expensive gas)
Plus taxes the 3ed highest in the US.
