As we surmised Monday, as temperatures seem to climb, so do gasoline prices. This is seemingly the case in California where a late season heat wave has spelled trouble for refineries as power problems have led to sudden drops in gasoline production, fueling fears of supply issues.

Wholesale gasoline prices, the price gas stations pay for their gasoline, surged yesterday and is continuing to mount an impressive rise today. If gains on the market so far today hold, wholesale prices may be as much as 73c/gal higher than they were a week ago today. Such a spike could lead to massive spikes over the next week in California as stations sell through their cheaper gasoline and begin to raise prices to offset the higher cost of replenishment...

Michigan too. Gov. Snyder wants a 19 cents tax hike. If he does more of that he will be gone.

Prices for USA Gasoline regular today are back down to $4.159. Some stations are selling in the high-threes. Beat it, "Spike!"

Prices at USA Gasoline, a low-price chain, dropped by two cents this evening, to $4.639 per gallon, regular. We are hoping for "More Like This."

California only has itself to blame for the high prices because they continue to vote for DemocRATs in Sacramento and because they supported the cap-and-trade law that is now in effect.

No power problems out here that I know of. Just election-year gouging. Prices went up at least 6 cents overnight (that's at USA, a low-price station; other brands had greater increases). Somebody bring us some Pemex!

The speculators and big oil know how to punish blue states. Look at what they have been doing to Illinois.

Come on! Using warm temperatures in California as the reason for raising gas prices. That's like raising gas prices in the state of Washington because of rain.
