    Default Poor Californians

    You poor folks are about to be screwed, the EPA is at it again. Look for gas shortage of the 70's. The epa is going to start gas rationing starting in 2015

    Not sure if it'll get to the rationing stage, but look to much higher prices on everything from gas and electricity, to anything that needs to be delivered. All industries that the EPA and CARB regulate will be affected due to California's new Cap & Trade taxes.

    I wonder how many more companies will be leaving California.

    You see that hack news report saying that gas taxes will have to go up because gas prices are so low? Even though a lower price will sell more fuel... Even though gas taxes aren't a percentage but a set rate?

    I feel sorry for them. Especially those that are deeply entrenched there; to have to pull up anchor and move is a tough one. I know if I had to do it, it would take a long time to get reestablished. More than likely would loose a year in wages. Some people are just stuck. Others love their area.

    I can not relocate. Sure I can sell and try to reestablish . I am going to sell one day, and hope I don't have to work to make it. It's a Tough choice. But will have to be made eventually. Either way I will be heading out of this state one day. Just to young to call it quits. There is still money to be made.

    One of our customers is in Fuel Retail...demand/volume has been in decline since 2007, according to him...primarily driven by more fuel efficient vehicles...

    He's making nice $$$ profits in this decline...wholesale is falling much faster than retail...

    We'd love to relocate...being pretty much on a fixed income these days, lowering the COL is a primary concern...tough to do when you've lived all your life in SoCal...
