I traveled to California this past weekend. I stop in Quartzite Az to get gas. I was shocked to see the lines of cars waiting to get gas. Everywhere I went, long lines and lots of trucks trying to get gas. As i found out, everyone is stopping before they get to California for gas. people leaving the state are only getting enough gas to get out of Californian and fill up in AZ. One trucker told me if this continues, he wont be able to make a living, trucking. He is worried about the next 4 months because thats when gas prices usually peak. Az gas prices are about 50 to 75cents cheaper but still extremely high. Businesses in California continue to hike their prices to maintain their profits and the ave working man get hit with higher gas prices as well as a increase in consumer products. this is getting really ugly and somebody in Washington better wake up

suretown, I have to guess you are projecting here since I have actually been out most of the day. Hope you haven't deluded yourself into thinking someone, somewhere, anywhere, anytime, might be sitting around waiting for you to post. If you have you might qualify to be a commentator on HLNs Nancy Grace coverage of the Jodi Arias Trial.

Yes, deme, in a head on accident with another smaller vehicle but you are leaving out the incredible toll the proneness of SUVs to rollover and the horrendous toll that has taken on their owners and passengers, including the tendencies of rollovers to produce a high number of paraplegics. Further, they make driving the roads more dangerous in general for everyone because they significantly block views of traffic. They also no doubt contribute to a certain amount of unsafe driving by many of their owners who may have a falsely enhanced sense of their own safety.

Under Obama we are producing record amounts of GAS! The problem is world demand as well as ignorant self serving consumers buying SUVs that are incredibly inefficient, are involved in just about every road accident and serve no purpose for those who buy them. Bigger ain’t better fella, if your so patriotic go and buy a prius and stop supporting Iran, Russia, arabs & Venezuela. Energy security = national security.
Suvs in accidents-you're dreaming. Prius or luxury car? No comparison. Bigger is always better unless you're a vegetable-then tiny is tastier! I paid $3.86 (outta of NYC) today, it's $3.99 in NYC for reg. I know a liquor store on the border that's always busy (300 space parking lot)-why spend more?
