For those of you driving over the river and through the woods to grandma's house for Thanksgiving -- this picture is going to hurt. This particular Chevron is on the corner of Cesar Chavez and Alameda in Downtown LA. And we're sure it's not the only one around town with prices like these.

From today'sLA Times:

California motorists paid an average of $3.395 for a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline, up 2.9 cents from the week before, according to the Energy Department's weekly survey of service stations. The state average was 83 cents higher than at this time last year. Prices also edged higher in the Rocky Mountain states and parts of the East Coast.

Sheesh. With gas prices like these, maybe it's not too late to fly to grandma's house.

Might be cheaper anyway.
