Gas Prices Spike

Hosted by

The West Coast, including California, is not connected to gasoline pipelines in the rest of the country.  It has to be supplied by its own, separate system.  With fewer refineries than there used to be, it's become vulnerable to problems it could have weathered before. But nobody's ever seen anything like the skyrocketing price increases of the past few days.
