In your opinion ma'am, do you think there is some sort of foul play in these refinery fire to cause the prices to go up?

Gas here in Central Illinois actually dropped a little. We're at $3.68. I can't imagine $5.00 a gal, but I'm betting it will soon be like that everywhere.

The Historic rise was the precurser to get us used to $3.00 a gallon gas. So, when the fluctuations move to $4.00 its not that big of deal. Now, going from $.99 a gallon to $2.00 or even $2.50 was a huge deal.
California's projected budget deficit has ballooned to $16 billion, much larger than the $9.2 billion estimated in January, Gov. Jerry Brown said, and he warned of more painful spending cuts.
California's combined federal, state, and local gasoline tax is among the highest in the United States at 67 cents per gallon.
