Coming to a gas station near you

Gas prices in California are at an all-time high. The statewide average price for a gallon of regular is now 58 cents more per gallon, than the same time last year.

But, there is one place on the Central Coast where you can expect to pay more than $5 a gallon. The Americo gas station in the tiny coastal town of Gorda, about 40 miles south of Big Sur, is selling gasoline for $5.19 a gallon for regular, and $5.39 for premium.

Despite high prices, the local gas stop grabs customers, without any competition. And according to locals, the pain at the pump isn’t over yet… as they plan to raise the prices another 20 cents in the coming weeks.

    One result of the high price of gas is that U.S. postage stamps are going up again! They will go from 41 cents to 42 cents on May 12.

    Terrible, just terrible. Do I put the money in the collection basket or do I put it in my car?
