Almost every slot on that sign is for gasoline that is just about or over $4 per gallon. And it looks like the prices are getting ready to go up again, judging by the blank number squares on the medium-grade and premium-grade price slots.
These gasoline prices are approaching a three-year high. Remember 2008 at this time, when gasoline prices were well over $4 a gallon here in Southern California? We’re almost back to those days.
*I filled up here at this Chevron Station in Covina, California, today, and it cost me well over $50 for my 13-gallon tank on my gas-stingy VW Jetta. I don’t remember a fill-up going over $50 in a long, long time. Also, according to Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Chevron received a $19 million refund from the IRS last year. That was after the energy giant made $10 billion in profits the year before.
