Either people were messing with the prices to get a panic going or they were confusing what may have been an impromptu designation signifying that a station was out of gas on the site. Don't think they have a "station is out of gas" option on there as you just input the price. One of those stations that had a $9 price was definitely an independent type of store and may have simply been out. There is actually gas available for independents but, from what I understand, the oil companies are selling it at prices that the indies just know they won't be able to sell. Many just aren't buying it. Can't blame them. Running at a massive loss sucks. Glad somebody at Gas Buddy caught the hijinks and corrected it. [/quote]
some stations have closed..
As a result, wholesale prices have jumped nearly 73 cents a gallon over the last week. Experts predict that stations are about to pass on that cost to California drivers this week, and there's nothing drivers can do about it.
According to fuel analysts, we could see a jump of 10 to 30 cents a gallon in a matter of days.
What's causing this price spike? The problem is low production blamed on several oil refinery outages due to the extreme heat and continuing problems from an oil refinery fire in Northern California this summer.
californa doom only!
