Yea 1979 all over again. Difference is it was only 90 cents a gallon then. Even if you figure inflation that's what... still under $3 a gallon by today's standards. The middle class was much larger, and cost of living was much lower than it is now.

This isn't similar to the situation in 1979 other than gas is being ration. The implications of this will be much further reaching than they ever were 33 years ago.

Care to back up that ridiculous claim with some evidence?
 Quoting: ZAZZ Returns!

Gas rationing in the 70's was due to OPEC limiting the supply to the United States.

The situation in California is due to the state having it's own particular formulation of gasoline different from the rest of the states and the fact that two of the state's refineries were offline for a period of time.

While it sucks for California at the moment, it isn't that big of a deal. The refineries will eventually catch back up and the supply will be fine. California has gone through things like this before like the last time the damn Chevron plant in the bay area caught on fire.
