  • Gas in CA now 6 dollars a gallon

    Told you it was coming. Now reaching 6 dollars. 7 dollars a gallon come simmertime.

    and yet this blue state continues to overtax it. Continues to punish and close refineries. Biden does nothing….his exec orders alone add 1-2 dollars a gallon. Energy independence would lower these prices big time.


    this isn’t about UKraine war. This is about Biden and democrats pushing an agenda that makes gas extremely expensive. It’s planned. Why? So they push renewable energy/electric cars.


    Lower income(most of America) cannot afford 50K(that’s on the cheap end) electric cars…they drive mid 90s Hondas…older cars….


    keep making it easy for GOP votes.

    Pelosi is a ****ing idiot.

    she agrees to ban imports for Russia oil. OK. That’s great. Both GOP and Dems want that. So what needs to be done for that not to spike prices into 8 dollars a gallon? Expand and use domestic oil. So she’s not for that…. Just morons who have no idea what the **** they are doing.


    Pelosi favors banning all Russian oil imports into the United States

    it’s awesome knowing voters will pay most their incomes(low wage jobs) on gas in 2022….an election year.

    mind blowing how democrats punish US oil. They fail to understand oil for US will still come from the earth no matter the restrictions on this country ….the climate impact is the same. What happens when US uses their own oil? They wouldn’t use foreign oil. Which means less barrels a day from all those countries…

        Why would they do that? They’ll just blame Russia for the high gas prices. And no amount of explaining will change the retards minds.

        Watch these ****ing idiots institute price controls which will cause a massive shortage. Then blame Russia and greedy oil execs for it. Then possibly nationalizing oil lol.

              Wild times. I'd expect energy-related prices to continue to go up nationwide for quite a bit longer.

                    The real mystery here is why this couldn’t have ended up in a previous thread about the topic…

                    new thread worthy? Not convinced!

                        It’s so confusing now. I don’t know who to blame anymore between Obama and Biden!!! 🤦‍♂️ Maybe Antifa? Hillary? Critical Race Theory? Probably all of the above I guess. 🤷🏼‍♂️

                          We certainly don't want to blame the oil companies and their massive, record profits! Or a world wide pandemic that f***ed with supply and demand! Or OPEC! It's all Joe Biden's fault, damn it!!!

                            Wait until world war 3 starts in a few months.

                            10 dollars a gallon by next year.


                            Russia trying to bomb a nuclear plant right now. World war 3 is imminent. China and Russia will combine forces and attack America. It’ll start with a massive cyber attack that will cripple the country.

                            End of the world is closer than people think. 1-2 years time.

                                And it hits the poorest Californians hardest, they don’t have the advantage of being able to work from home. I never want to go to an office again tbh

                                  It's crazy, nobody at my company wants to go back to the office. They've been trying to get us back in for several months now. They're pretty much forcing the issue now. Lots of people are leaving. Senior management can't seem to figure out that everyone has adjusted the way they work and live, and that they prefer the new way. Sure, some corporate jobs demand in an in person posture. But frankly, most don't. I'm not sure what it's going to take for them to figure out the old way is gone.

                                    My office in SF is having a devil of a time filling positions. We’re teleworking full-time now, but will be moving to a hybrid model eventually. Already starting to lose people because they live far away in the East Bay and Sacramento and don’t want to deal with the commute. Most everyone BARTs it in, so I don’t think gas prices are a factor, but people just don’t wanna deal with a commute in general if they don’t have to. Not sure if it’s borne out by any of the data yet, but seems like increased work-from-home would be a pretty good way to help reduce our national carbon footprint.

                                      People leaving, that’s it. They will have to make their offers more enticing to attract and keep the best talent. The power is finally in workers’ hands for a change, and I love it. 😎 Employers who don’t adapt to the new post-COVID reality aren’t going to thrive and may not even survive. Darwin. 👍🏻

                                        Yeah I work for a SaaS company so most of our employees were already working remotely but I was one of 10-12 people who would habitually make the commute to our LA office pre-pandemic. Once that option was gone, I started to enjoy building my daily routines at home. I feel less stressed on a day to day basis and can get more sleep. I do miss the social element of the office but Google Meet + the occasional social gathering has compensated well enough considering every other drawback that comes with the alternative.

                                          Time is money! Give me two hours a day of my life back not commuting and I’m a much happier person. And a more productive employee.

                                            Can't imagine having that long of a commute. I hated driving 25 minutes across Fargo in the winter time to head to the office. That being said, I totally get why some people wouldn't want to go back to offices after everything the past few years. Especially those who have kids (can save on daycare costs) and still be productive and get their work done at home.

                                            I guess it really just depends on the person, position and what's asked of you. Socialization and community is important for a lot of people (especially me), but then there are a lot of work places where the culture totally sucks. I think the places struggling to get people back probably had shitty/toxic environments in the first place.

                                              It’s just boomer bullshit. Some will be drug kicking and screaming to the new way. They want to see employees in the office in their little cubicle being miserable.

                                              Meanwhile, at least Biden is kind of doing something.

                                                You are probably on to something here. Older generations probably are having a harder time adapting to the new way. That's a given. Usually how it goes for most things. But at the same time, there is a sense of power or control of theirs being lost by not being able to tell people what to do or keep tabs on them daily. There are definitely supervisors/bosses out there who feed off of that sort of thing.

                                                  Yup, that's definitely part of it. And I understand the "corporate culture" arguments as well, but that can be mitigated by having periodic in person events and frequent video meetings. Another factor I bet is political pressure. Cities lose money, both in the form of wage taxes and not having the workers in the city going to stores, restaurants and parking facilities, by having people work from home. But I think remote work is easily a net positive. Particularly if companies are smart enough to take advantage of the potential facilities savings.
