Getting “tanked” in Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES (CBS/AP) — The average price for a gallon of self-serve regular unleaded gasoline in Los Angeles County has passed the $4 mark for the first time since Aug. 19, 2008.  The average price is 3.3 cents higher than a week ago, 33.9 cents above what it was one month ago, and 90.3 cents greater than it was one year ago, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.This is getting ugly! Stopped by the gas station today to get some gas and I got a little light-headed. Unbelievable the rapid price hikes we are enduring, here in Los Angeles. Pretty soon we’re gonna have to do like some Asian countries and rely on bicycles and mopeds. So, everyone, stock up on your Wheaties and make sure you have a pair of good running shoes. Things are getting out of hand and that includes, “driving”. Gives us a BREAK will ya’, I am NOT getting any younger.
