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.
