Found in LA: Gas Prices... Way High
$3.55 for unleaded. Check, albeit annoying.
$3.79 for performance plus. Ugh, okay, check.
$9.38 a gallon for high performance. Che-- wha???!?!?!!!?
LAist Featured Photos photographer Movie Lover snapped this shot on the Westside. "While driving past a gas station in Brentwood, CA a while back, I noticed that the price had gone up. Way up." Yeah, no doubt.
Let's see, April Fool's Day is next month. It's not a six upside down. This doesn't look like natural gas. And diesel only hit $4/gallon today in some parts of California.
Is this some kind of harbinger? Or a crude mistake? In a report this morning, KABC said that "some analysts expect prices to rise to near $4 a gallon as summer driving picks up."
As of this morning, the Los Angeles average per unleaded gallon was $3.52, $3.46 in Orange County, $3.52 for the Inland Empire and a $3.51 in Ventura County.
