California Dreaming

All weekend I heard references on the radio and the TV news programs about how angry and perplexed Californians — especially California lawmakers — are over the fact that their gas prices are so much higher than everyone else’s. Fine, be angry. That makes sense. But I thought the reason California’s pump prices are so high is because California insists on extra additatives and higher taxes for environmental goals. Maybe Adler or Hayward want to add something here, but anger at oil companies seems like a bit of misdirection to me.
