Gas prices smack you right in the face

You want a smack in the face?

Like, I’m talking a real slap in the face?

Like, Dave-Chapelle-in-Rick-James-garb slap in the face?

I’m pretty sure recent gas prices achieve that.

Fuel prices in California took a jump last week—because they weren’t already too high, apparently—to as much as 16 cents more per gallon.

And it looks like we could be in for another rise in the almost-instant future.

A slow spring for West Coast refineries has forced the California average for gas prices up to $4.23 per gallon.

These problems—small issues like mini outages and other refinery issues—are cutting at the supply of California’s “special blend of clean burning gas.” This could cause prices to rise an additional 20 cents within the next few days.

That’s right. 20 cents.

Charlie Murphy! What did the gas prices say to the face? SLLLLLAP!!

However, there is belief that this rise won’t last too long.

Tom Robinson, president of Rotten Robbie, told the Merc that since the recent price spike:

“…is related to refiner problems, I don’t think the increases will last long, but they’re currently very ugly.”

  1. I knew that prices were going to go up, it is just I was not ready for gas prices to increase. It seems like the gas price increase has just recently occurred to us. You know, soon enough even pay day advance services are not going to save us as prices are going to get tremendously high. To be honest, I cannot recall price to go lower any time in the nearest past. Up only and the salaries remain the same or even worse go down! What a shame

    Who is taking accountability for these mini outages etc. that increase the gas prices we all pay? Is anyone getting fired over these seemingly technical issues that with all the money involve can be solve? I guess these are my dumb questions knowing that when gas price goes up just a few pennies these big boys running these private companies make millions if not billions.
