Lack of oil and oil prices is not the problem in fact demand for gas is dropping. The main reason is the refinery's are all running at peek production and if one breaks down you get what's happening in Cali. The last refinery built in the US was back in 1976 and the current refinery's can't keep up.

Last year here in Alberta one of our 3 diesel plants went down just before another was set to shut down for a scheduled maintenance(and they did). That left us with one plant producing diesel and the prices shot up

Looks like several reasons according to this.

When we came through Needles, CA on Monday, diesel was $4.999 (that's SO much better than $5.00). I didn't notice the price of gas, since I was still choking on the price of diesel.

Gas Buddy shows diesel from $3.96 to $4.39, and regular unleaded from $3.61 to $3.92 in the Las Vegas area right now (late Friday night).

It's anywhere between 4.39 to 4.79 here and in the smaller towns, it's above $5.00

It's all a grab all for profits and using scare tactics and poor excuses to jack up prices. Plus the media is helping this greedy companies exploit the working American.

Diesel here is 1.14 a litre or 4.31
NB diesel is 136.9 a litre
The reason it gives us better gas mileage (kmage) is its more fuel.

Unfortunately Calif has some extremely stringent regulations and pollution concerns that drive prices way up. They must be hurting badly.

And Irving Oil's number one spot to export fuel to is ... the state of Calif
