for those complaining about high prices of gas - so go to a discount gas station!!. . .We have owned Chevron stock in the family for over 40 years, and seldom buy their gas. Why, because they are the highest in Walnut Creek and Norcal. . .I use my free will as a consumer and buy at Valero, etc. . . I read an article a few months ago about Northern California people are the most brand loyal, and don't support discount gas stations. In other parts of the country, people shop around more, and so there are more discount stations. . .Also people here drive more BMW's, etc. than in Ohio, or Oklahoma, etc. where price of gas is cheaper. . .OF COURSE I am not complaining, we bank those nice dividends each year, and thank the California consumer who drives a nice big SUV!!
