Californians had a bad year at the pump in 2012, averaging a record $4.028 for a gallon of regular gasoline, according to AAA. That shattered the previous record, set in 2011, by 21.3 cents a gallon. The jump was so big that it surprised even people who review fuel prices on a daily basis.

    Are you kidding?? The obumbler got what he wanted. A second term so I'd bet big money that the fuel prices will skyrocket. That's exactly what he wants to do so that we will be forced to buy his p.o.s. beer can electric cars that aren't worth a squat.

  • juirsh 2013/01/14 14:37:45
    Democrat in charge......... Yeah they'll rise!
  • ymcmillan2 2013/01/14 06:19:38
    I love to say fall...but that is only a dream of mine...lol
  • Skar 2013/01/14 06:13:06
    They've gone down quite a bit in my area already.

    I say rise because I believe that 0bama will get his way. 0bama wants numerous cost raising regulations placed on the fossil fuel industry and they all increase the price.

    Now Mr LA Times:
    I am sick and tired about the high cost of gasoline in California. Progressive California has requirements for the emission controls that other places will not even consider, including one that makes it more hazzardous than ordinary emisions. Let's have common sense and your costs will go down.

    The Progressives won't be happy until a gallon of gas approaches $10 per gallon. Maybe not even then.

  • daredevil 2013/01/13 20:24:42
    Every thing is going to rise even my Grand Pa Pa on Viagra !
  • Michael 2013/01/13 19:54:56
    Fracking is the answer, but with the Senate and White House in power, they will regulate it to death and gas prices will equal Europe's, just like everything else will reflect Europe in Obama's goal.
  • Arss_bandit 2013/01/13 19:08:07
    Definitely rise

    obama has said that he would like to see gasoline at $10.00 or more a gallon.

    Where's your proof? Or is this just slander?

    I just viewed the entire clip. No where once did he say yes gas prices should be higher.

    Not once, ever.

    This isn't proof.

    Now, where is your proof that Obama said he wanted gas prices at 10$ or more a gallon? does it even exist?
  • Sal Mon... John Wa... 2013/01/14 01:18:49

    Seems you have a comprehension problem. Riddle me this, why does Obama say he wants "energy prices to necessarily skyrocket!"? Give me the reason why ...... simple request from an Obama supporter such as yourself.

    They are going to have to rise. The current price for regular is under $3 at $2.97 (&9/10) in my area.

    Rise of course! We WILL see a "carbon tax" implemented now that Dear Leader won a second term! He has to repay his supporters after all!

  • Nuke 2013/01/12 17:28:47
    Here's the man to blame too, in Obama's own words "Under my plan, prices will "necessarily" SKYROCKET" If you don't think Obama is to blame for high gas prices think again.
  • MARIDOTS 2013/01/12 04:56:24
    Prices are already going up. 0bummer doesn't have a dog in this fight anymore, he's in his last term so he doesn't give a rats ass if prices are high or low. He's on Time mag cover.. he's accomplished what he set out to do, we're all screwed. So prices will rise as he continues to bow to the muslim brotherhood and shame us further as a nation.
  • sally 2013/01/12 03:50:46
    I mean here I've been paying 2.60-3.30 for a while now but I don't expect the price to drop any more than that. The lowest I saw it was at 2.57 but I doubt it'll drop anymore.
  • kimmie 2013/01/11 23:46:31
    If people complaining so much about the gas prices how expensive it is then take the bus ,depending on we're you live their are still some places in the states have cheaper gas prices
  • MARIDOTS kimmie 2013/01/12 04:52:33
    there is no public transportation where I live. NONE! for me to get to work, its at least an hour drive each way, sometimes more depending on what hospital I'm going to. With hours being variable its not possible to depened on anything but myself. So taking a bus isn't the answer for everyone.
  • 001 2013/01/11 23:33:06
    Take any 365 days difference and you'll probably see a rise. But I guess that goes for most things.

    Price gets low a few months before the election (there's a shock, snort) and then I said, "watch it rise high again if Sir Doofus Golfs A Lot gets another 4." Told ya so!
  • Matt M 2013/01/11 06:48:10

    1) Lot of crude coming on line, prices are softening.
    2) Lof of new refining capacity coming on line.
    3) Lot of repairs made to refineries that have been down.
    4) Fair number of shut but available refineries around.
    5) Escalation of foriegn demand not happening that rapidly.

    On the other hand...there really isn't any other hand. No real case for anything but falling prices.

    try convincing conservative and romney supporters of that.

    Well, I convinced myself. This has nothing to do with policy. Just the market.

    No matter what government is in office the end is inevitable ...like its written "heaven and earth shall pass. But His word is forever." Id rather my soul be good in heaven than have a ton here and nothing in heaven.. :) the human race has grown too corrupt to get any better.
