Gas Hits Five Dollars a Gallon In California, The End Times Draw Ever More Near

This image was lost some time after publication, but you can still view it here.

Although AAA of California is reporting some drivers are now paying $4 a gallon for regular unleaded gasoline, local Cali station KSBW found gas stations in Gorda, south of Big Sur, currently charging $5 per gallon for gas. While that's obviously an isolated occurrence, the average price is getting pretty high up the cost meter. For instance in Salinas, AAA recorded an average of $3.39 per gallon. Santa Cruz is at an average of $3.37 per gallon. Yes, the gas prices in California are always higher than elsewhere in the country, but this is getting ridiculous. Something must be done! Oh, Toyota — please come and save us. If they only could get every individual in the United States to drive a Prius — then all we'd have to worry about is cows farting. Also, we'd be living in a fantasy. (Hat tip to SwatLax!) [via KSBW]
