      What is the cause of rising gas prices?

      Oil production is still up, no wars going on in oil country, etc.

      basic answer
      we export a ton of oil now (thanks obama!), none of that stuff stays here. > https://www.eia.gov/dnav/pet/hist/Le...s=MCREXUS1&f=M (most goes to canada, china, south korea)
      saudi owns large us refiner motiva, we still rely on heavier imported slate products to refine than we pull from the ground to export
      seasonal pricing that is typical from new year til early summer (refinery maintenance & summer blend switch) > http://www.equityclock.com/charts/cr...easonal-chart/
      last few weeks even more negative import draw
      think refineries running around 88% of capacity and had about -1% draw on gas stocks
      whatever geopolitical iran thing going (wanting to shut hormuz) or dollar movement
      i'm sure some country isn't exporting as much
      someone else probably has a better answer who geeks out on oil numbers

      There is a seasonal fluctuation simply between summer and winter blend, Summer blend is rolling out and costs more.

      Yep. Couple that with the routine refinery maintenance that traditionally happens in late February and all it takes is a refinery or 2 being off-line longer than expected due to increased repairs/maint and it can cause a serious uptick in at the pump pricing this time of year.

      So high gas prices in California might start an investigation into its pricing...

      SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) —
      California's governor wants to know why gas prices are higher than in the rest of the country, blaming potential "inappropriate industry practices" Tuesday rather than the state's higher taxes and tougher environmental regulations.

      Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom asked the California Energy Commission for an analysis of the state's gas prices by May 15. California drivers were paying an average of $4.03 per gallon Tuesday, or $1.18 more than the national average, according to AAA.

      Higher taxes, along with a combination of tougher gas standards and environmental regulations, normally account for about 70 cents of that difference, said Gordon Schremp, a senior fuels specialist with the California Energy Commission. But the rest is a mystery.

      In 2017, the state's Petroleum Market Advisory Committee found that California has had "a continuous and significant unexplained differential compared to the rest of the country" since February 2015. That difference has cost Californians more than $17 billion, or about $1,700 for a family of four, said Severin Borenstein, faculty director at the Energy Institute at the University of California, Berkeley's business school.

      In a letter to energy commission chairman David Hochschild, Newsom defended the state's environmental standards, accusing critics of using the high prices to "undermine our clean air and safety standards."

      "Independent analysis suggests that an unaccounted-for price differential exists in California's gas prices and that this price differential may stem in part from inappropriate industry practices," Newsom wrote.

      The commission agreed to do the price analysis but declined further comment.

      Western States Petroleum Association President Catherine Reheis-Boyd noted that California's gas prices have been scrutinized in dozens of government inquiries, "all of which concluded the dynamics of supply and demand are responsible for movements in the price of gasoline and diesel fuel."

      Spiking gas prices have caused headaches for California policymakers since the Legislature approved a 12-cent gas tax increase in 2016.

      Last year, voters recalled a Democratic state senator who voted for the increase and replaced him with a Republican. But a statewide ballot initiative to repeal the higher tax failed with more than 56 percent of the vote.

      As gas prices kept climbing, 19 state lawmakers in January asked Attorney General Xavier Becerra to investigate the "unexplained surcharge."

      "This mystery surcharge happens between the refinery and retail purchase by the consumer," Democratic Assemblyman Marc Levine said. "This is a punitive, abusive practice that Californians are paying."

      But it's unclear if Becerra's office took any action. Representatives from his office on Tuesday would not confirm or deny an investigation.

      Prices don't seem all that high in context. Sure, they took a dip over the winter, but we're just back where we were in October.



      Here's a bit more resolution over the past year and a half.

      Except in California. National average for regular is $2.85 a gallon, while California's average is $4.05 a gallon.

      With gas in the mid 4's around the Bay Area, EV smug levels have hit an all time high.

      Actually I think it's wrong

      Regular is $1.729 per litre now, multiply by 3.78 to get a US gallon is $6.53. That's about $5 US, but of course we don't earn US dollars.

      $5 per gallon is still pretty bad. Don't worry, California is gonna get there soon enough.
