You think your prices are bad? Here in the Grass Valley/Nevada City area, the price of regular is well over $4.00 & diesel over $5.00. This morning at a Shell station I had to pay $4.199 for regular, the most I have ever paid for gas in my life! I think diesel was $5.279 but I didn't look closely as I was in a rush, late on my Model A Club outing. $42 to fill up a Model A Ford! I think this country (USA) should do like Mexico & Venezuela have done. Nationalize Big Oil, especially the oil wells in this country. In Venezuela I understand gas is selling for $0.42 cents a gallon! I don't recommend our government subside gas that way but sell it at the prevailing market & use the profits to subside cars that can get over 50 MPG & especially plug in hybrids. I have heard comments that gas will hit $5 or $6 a gallon this summer & may climb in the near future to $12 a gallon!
So far, I haven't been able to locate any local restaurant that will give away WVO. They all tell me it is already spoken for. If any of you out there have a source of WVO, I suggest you start collecting all you can, stockpiling it to make into biodiesel, or run as WVO.
