California gas now highest in the contiguous US


Californians aren’t noticing much of a gas tax hike — yet.

You see, the Democrat politicians timed their new gas tax to coincide with the state-permitted “winter blend” gasoline kicking in, which costs about 12 cents less per gallon than the state-mandated “summer blend.” How convenient for them!

Remember, the Democrat politicians are expert thieves and master manipulators. They take more money from you — slowly, so you don’t realize it. Therefore, their new gas tax will charge 12 more cents per gallon November 1, but you won’t really “feel it” until Spring 2018.

So, the first noticeable pain will be your DMV bill going up $25 to $175 on January 1, 2018. Then, when the “summer blend” fuel returns, you’ll notice the 12 cents more tax per gallon. And then, in July 2019, the Democrats’ new gas tax will increase around 7.5 cents more per gallon, which is nearly 20 cents per gallon total in new gas taxes.

California has higher gas prices than other states because of higher gas taxes (the consequences of Democrat rulers), higher gasoline regulations (it costs more to produce California-only blends), lower supply from within (the State greatly limits oil drilling), lower supply from without (the State isn’t permitting new pipelines from other states), and higher real estate prices (more depressing of the supply due to Democrats’ laws) and more expensive employees (job-killing socialism of the Democrat politicians).

Bottom line, when Democrats are in control of a state and are in bed with environmental wacko groups, you and everyone else gets socked with higher gas prices and higher prices for most everything else!
