    y'know, why the 9/10th? why not just approve a 1/10 tax increase or a 9/10 decrease and be done with it? it's like all the pricing ending in .99.

    It is so nice now that we are seeing other things besides our houses deflating in price.

    Think it has more to do with the gas companies. If you raised taxes a tenth the would just charge a whole penny more.

    I havent' been driving by my local gas station so I can't check :) .. Although California was apparently hit with a couple Refinery issues (one went Bankrupt :shrug:) and as a result I believe the supply tightened a bit .. so our prices could be higher now.

    I love it... It's been 1.55 to 1.59 since the price of crude dropped from $45 to $36 a barrel. Israel bombs the Gaza Strip, oil jump back to $40 a barrel and gas shoots up to 1.65.

    What a bunch of BS!!!!!!

    We have a corner here in Vero Beach that has TWO Mobile stations, one on the NW corner and a second on the SW corner, directly across the street from eachother. Normally their prices are fairly close, but, today the privately owned one, Mark's Mobil (on the NW corner) had regular at $1.599, while, at the same time the corporate owned one (on the SW corner) was at $1.699. I'd love to know why the difference. They are both at 43rd Street and SR-60. THeir two grades of premium were the same, $1.999 and $2.099.

    For whatever reason, and I suspect it's a combination of greed and orneriness, gas prices in Southern California have moved up lately. They're now about $1.87 a gallon in Orange County, up from a low of $1.67 a few weeks ago.

    Expect gas prices to continue to rise as the price of oil has been rising due to the violence in Gaza right now.
