Don't forget, CA also has a state-mandated CA-only gasoline formula. Yup, the refineries have to mix up a special blend just for us! That, of course, costs them extra money. And how do they recover that? Yup--from the consumer.

I chuckle when I see people complaining about gas prices that are 60-75% of what I see every day. And I still feel sorry for our European brethren, because they have it a whole lot worse than us. And yes, most of that seems to be the taxes. Though from what I have read it supposedly isn't a money-grab by the EC gov'ts, but more of an effort to get people to use public transit in preference to private automobiles.
