Why does CA have the highest gasoline prices in the country?


Only Hawaii has a higher price for gas. CA has the most people in the country, and the most number of cars and drivers in the country, so why should they pay more than the rest of the country. Only six states in the country have an average gas price above $2 a gallon.

    average in CA $2.47 for regular.

    Years ago their anti smog additive was PCBA a known carcinogen, and today it is 10% of Ethanol, a less efficient fuel than gasoline.

    Also, CA taxes everything and gasoline tax is high.

    Wilmington, and Torrance have the old oil fire. But, you also know that CA has high taxes as well.
