Found in LA: Not So 'Thrifty' Gas
LAist Featured Photos contributor Marshall Astor titled this photo "Holy Fuck Part Deux! Thrifty Gas in San Pedro Goes for Broke."
He continues to say "this gas station's prices have gone nuts, but every time I drive by, there's some moron at the pump getting gouged.
"For reference, I paid $4.01 at a nearby station last week, and most other nearby stations are in the low $4.10-20 range.
"I'm expecting this pump to hit $5.00 soon. I have no idea what's going on at this place."
The Los Angeles average price of one gallon regular gas is $4.27 as of Wednesday, June 3, 2008.
Last week, federal investigators announced that they had been looking into possible price manipulation since December.
