You can view research records and discover that the state of California has some of the largest natural oil reserves in the country. The vast majority of these sources are on federal land around the state. You can even see a number of these former sites when traveling north of Los Angeles county and other remote locations around the state.

Nevertheless, it’s clear that the Democrat party of California has no desire to allow the opening of these sites to oil companies, even though promotion of this exploration will eventually lower the cost of oil in our state. This also includes allowing oil companies to pursue the opening fracking sites in our state as well. Democrats are determined to eliminate, over time, our country’s dependence of gasoline as a source of energy. Perhaps, this explains why our Governor recently made it illegal for car dealers to sell new, gasoline generated vehicles by 2035.

Currently the price of wholesale gas has been going down around the country (currently averaging $3.81 a gallon). Neighboring states of California have prices (on average) over $1.50 less a gallon than California. Yet California’s state government continues to restrict and control the number of refineries in our state. Currently, the major refineries here (due to various issues) are producing gas at only 80% capacity.

Finally, the Democrat state imposed California gas tax is the highest in the country. It is also a tax that continues to grow each year which similarly makes the cost of our gasoline very high!

It’s time we voice our opinion to our state’s political leaders about this. I encourage you to call the following number and leave a voice mail to members of our State Assembly. You can call (916) 319-2027 and ask for your Assembly member’s office in your area. This way you can voice your opinion on the cost of gas that personally affects each of us. Thank you very much!
