And speaking of inflation, the sticker prices for gas in some resort cities of California are reaching nose-bleed levels.
Motorists trying to fill up in Big Sur, a resort town on the California coast, were shocked to find the price for premium gas was $9.80 a gallon. Other resort areas are posting prices that high as well.
In major cities, Costco and other gas stations that sell their fuel below the average price of $6.17 a gallon are seeing huge traffic jams as motorists line up.
These are the highest prices adjusted for inflation since the Carter era. Will we see a return of Jimmy’s gas rationing and odd-even license plate refueling rules?
