Cheap gas: Another reason to move to Texas

The following picture is from, which tracks gas prices nationally. The cheapest gas, as you can see, is in Texas and the Southeast. The most expensive by far is in California during the ongoing crisis because of the refinery fire and whatever nuttiness otherwise goes on in this state. Even thought California has a special blend of gas, during crises the state regulators could allow imports from other states for a brief time. Nothing would be hurt. Consumers would benefit.

But Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.

California has to be special and take another club to the backs of consumers. The only good thing to come out of this is that voters, having been gouged at the pump and with their wallets emptied, might be in no mood to increase taxes in November.
