With the increasing costs of gasoline prices many California residents are left bewildered and confused. The high prices at the pump cause controversy with the blame falling on ‘Big Oil’ yet, in reality, the cost is not only due to the heavy oil California produces but also how California voters demand its gas to be one of the cleanest in the world. This exhibit explains this and the many other dynamics that determine the cost, such as: region, regulation, market conditions, transportation, refining, and taxes. Many people have no idea that the gas tax in California is one of the highest in the U.S. at .70 cents per gallon! Come see What’s Up with Gasoline Prices? and you will be correctly informed.
