[quote:Anonymous Coward 13065523:MV8yMDA4ODgwXzMzNzU1NjM0X0FFQTVFNEM1] The gas crisis in Cali is the result of a combination of things, however, their legislature brought about most of it from pushing carbon credits and attempting to force people to go with other, greener options. Read the article below http://www.truckinginfo.com/news/news-detail.asp?news_id=78191&news_category_id=42 In addition, I would like to address the cries about the credit card industry having something to do with this. Yes, they charge to run the cards through the system, why shouldn't they? It's business, a business that merchants CHOSE to use in order to sell more, at least on the cc end, for impulse purchasing. They enjoy much higher sales and faster transactions at the cash register which translates into more sales simply because they can run more people through than if they were writing checks. I'm no fan of the banks at all, but this is a legitimate way to run a profit generating business and it employs thousands and thousands of people across the country, most who have nothing to do with the banks otherwise. The merchants did get together and sue the card companies, they forced them to show their profit and stated that they would lower their prices for the public if cc prices weren't so high, they haven;t and they never had any intention of doing so. they used the legislature to force the cc companies to lower prices, FOR THEIR BENEFIT, not yours. Can you imagine walking into a shoe store and demanding to know what their profit margin was? [/quote]
