California gas station surpasses $5 per gallon

GasBuddy Blog -- It is a dangeous waiting game. Will European and U.S. sanctions against Iran bring about a peaceful resolution to quell Iran's nuclear aggression? Will Israel remain patient and allow additional economic pressure on Iran from China work?

Will a collapsing Iranian economy be the catalyst for an overthrow of the current regime? Or, would heavy blows to Iran's economy accelerate a decision by President Ahmadinejad into a first-strike military action?

And if a conflict between Israel and Iran is inevitable, should the U.S. support Israel with active involvement? Passively? Or not at all?

The volatility of the entire Middle East is in question and consequently, crude oil prices continue their steady climb...

I guess I feel lucky being in a calif city as my lowest price is now down to 4.03. I'm hoping we might soon see under the 4.00 mark.

The volatility of the entire Middle East is in question… Iran, Israel, Syria. And there was Egypt and Libya. What next - *spending gone wild* Barry?
Meanwhile, big oil exports fuel and natural gas to the world for higher profits. Barry supports natural gas and oil production for sale to the world to help pay for his *spending gone wild* addiction. Speculators, manipulators and the banks continue to unfairly and unjustly make the driving public pay higher prices at the pump for their benefit.
Whatever the size or shape of the vehicle, Produce and ‘Drive’ vehicles with high MPG, are very reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money. Consider using ‘other’ forms of transportation to help lower your cost for transportation.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

Over $5 per gallon is just ridiculous. The pipeline from Canada and Gulf drilling would help bring that down.
