Make sure that if you're going to be driving through Cambria California that you have enough gas so that you
don't have to buy any gas there. They're gouging people with their gas prices. Gas prices are high enough and
when I was there they were charging $4.75 a gallon at the shell station there. The other gas station there was
also selling their gas for close to that amount. I believe their the highest gas prices in California. Gas prices are
high enough and their gouging people. Not sure how those people sleep at night knowing their ripping people
off. I was lucky to have avoided buying gas there. I made to San Luis Obispo where gas prices were the normal
prices for California. I won't give those bastard criminals in Cambria one cent of mine.

I believe in free market capitalism. Let them charge what they can charge and let consumers vote whether the price is fair by making purchases.

Cambria is an isolated resort area along the coast. I would expect prices to be higher there. illip88 doesn't post prices, not even the Cambria price for others. 1/120.

Of course this is another reason to make posters have a car before they can post a new topic. It would also be nice if they gave an IQ test also.

illip88,

No, they aren't. Learn what you're complaining about before making yourself look foolish in public.

Well Pilgrim since I've never been there or ever will be, it's really of no matter to me...you just might consider taking the issue up with someone who cares like your local forum perhaps.

It has been 12 days since illip88 shared this story here. His strongly worded statement lead me to believe he would be back to participate in the discussion he started, yet he still has 1 post and 120 points. I think that scoutmasters statement.

Find another town to get your gas if you are going through that town

I'm probably missing something, but this sounds like a very local issue; I'm not sure that many people across the United States and Canada will be anywhere near enough to Cambria to consider buying gas there.

If I remember correctly, being a Salinas Valley resident, and who traveled throughout the Monterey area down to San Luis Obisbo regularly, isn't Cambria a pretty much isolated town with a population of only a couple thousand people? If I remember correctly, their high school only has about 30 students (pretty sure it's under 40).

Sorry, but you're talking about a gas station in an isolated area, one not easy to routine service because of irregular delivery schedule, etc. However, before you call the station operators "bastard criminals", did you check what their wholesale price was, or what their operating expenses are (in order to maintain a relatively isolated gas station)? Have you gotten figures to understand why they're priced the way they are, or did you just decide that because the price is high, they must be "bastard criminals"?

That said, did you bother to post the gas price for that station, as well as the stations in San Luis Obisbo? I mean so that your fellow Gas Buddy members would be able to do their gas buying with more knowledge? Or did you just join Gas Buddy to complain about a very isolated gas station somewhere in California?

Thanks for joining this site just to post one comment on the national gas talk about some station in California that 98 percent of the members could care less about.

If you had joined the site and posted some prices, read some forum posts you might have known to post this in your local forum.
