Gas hit $7 per gallon on Catalina Island this week, which makes it even worse than heavily taxed European gas.

Today a gallon of regular unleaded at the Santa Catalina Island Co.-owned gas station on Pebbly Road cost $7.03 and prices on the island have been hovering around the $7 mark for the last two weeks, Stacy Dizon told CBS LA.

Of course high gas prices aren't a huge deal on the island where most people manage to get around on foot, bike or electric golf carts. Gas has to be barged in so residents expect that higher gas prices go with the territory.

"There’s not a lot to complain about when we’re living on an island," Catherine Rogers, a server at Original Jack’s Country Kitchen, told CBS.
