California’s Gasoline Panic
Democrats in California have worked hard for years to inflate gasoline prices, but now they’re searching for a fall guy as voters gripe about how much they’re paying to fill up. Round up the usual fossil-fuel suspects!

But California gas prices have been increasing relative to the other 49 states for years (see the nearby chart). The disparity especially widened in 2013 when the state’s cap-and-trade program took effect and in 2018 after Democrats raised the state gas tax. Last year California’s gas prices tracked about 77 cents higher than the U.S. average.

So Californians in the future can look forward to paying more to drive on deteriorating roads as they head to homes without electricity due to blackouts. How long will it take California voters to figure out that these are problems made in Sacramento by politicians? ...

No doubt, but I am speaking theoretically, not of the present world of fiscally irresponsible politicians and voters who support them. I think in Tucson, road funds have been misdirected to symbolic projects (beloved of Democrats) like attempts to revitalize Downtown.

I suppose the alternative is private turnpikes, but that brings up another problem of their being a kind of utility monopoly.

NYS gas taxes can't be beat, even by California. And I don't particularly see road benefits that are better here than in other States I've traveled. It's always fun to fill up a few miles before entering NY.

The Fed tax has remained at 18¢/G for a long time despite all the "Warming" panic from MSM parrots. Why haven't they raised it? Probably because being regressive, it would hit their fixed-income "Plebian" voting bloc hard. Thus, the CAFE standards.

Gas taxes by state:

Now this is old 2012 data, but you can bet the rates haven't decreased since then.

I endorse State fuel taxes, so long as they're a "user fee" to finance roads, which benefit even folks who don't drive.

That is only part of the equation, YIA. There is a significant tax piece. Plus we always found traffic and moving around more difficult, so there could be additional delivery costs.

What's sadly comical is that the complaints in California are very similar to those in Haiti. Both were led down a bad path by bad general worldview. Too many parallels.

Someone said California has the highest gas prices in the US because the state has higher clean air standards so the fuel must be formulated differently.

Classic socialist agenda...

Panic the populus by making a problem with no ready alternative. Afterwards, they come running to you hoping they can fix it, and then give the Democrats more control...

Classic as the old cowboy movie "The Lone Opossum "

This is a preview of the socialist paradise Jim and his buddies want for all of us. Universal healthcare! Combined, of course, with universal poverty.
