San Diego is coming up to $4 again, I just paid $4.03 but am seeing $3.97 a lot around town too. My dad works in the industry of storing gas for the county (NOT setting prices or working directly for an oil company mind you, he has no control expect to make sure stations get gas) and he says there is no shortage, in fact there is often a surplus. Prices are high because gas companies know we'll pay them :(
I think ours are hovering around $3.50-3.85. Good thing about living and working in a small town is that the only time you really have to use gas is when you go out of town to buy groceries. I've not filled up my car in over a month. I am really concerned for November. IMHO, if Obama wins again, the gas prices are going to skyrocket overnight. I suspect he's keeping them manageable just until the election in hopes of getting more votes.
