No Relief – AB-32 Gas Tax Delay Bill Dies in Legislature

The concerned Democrat’s bill to delay the implementation of the AB-32 fuel price increase, which takes effect on 1 Jan 2015, did not make it through the progressive controlled legislature. Duh. It was an attack on the progressive’s anthropogenic global warming religion. No one really thought it had any chance of becoming law. It would delay a major contribution to the Governor’s slush fund for his Slowing High Speed Rail Project.

Save your money now, you are going to need it when the price of a gallon of gas goes up from 16 cents to a dollar a gallon. It is in the governments best interest to make sure it goes as high as possible. How high are you willing to allow it to go before protesting?  Really, that high?

    So, for those living close enough to the various boarders and with large enough tanks will start to plan more trips to Reno, Carson, Grants Pass, Tijuana etc. (and the prices there will bump up as well) for everyone else here in CA the price of everything goes up

    Here in Phoenix, we have been paying around $3.43 to $3.47 a gallon of 87 octane gas. The price of fuel has dropped to $3.299 over the last 2 months. We get our fuel from both California and Texas so I don’t know if Texas fuel is cheaper or if California has a glut of fuel because of the higher taxes that they need to dump.

      Interesting, dropping prices due to reduced consumption in California has produced a surplus. Hire prices should result in lower base prices, but will it compensate for the AB-32 increase.

      I need to look at the over all price schedule and do an update to my graphic.
