The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in Orange County rose today to its highest amount since March 20, 2013, increasing 1.4 cents to $4.134. It is 7.5 cents more than one week ago, 16.5 cents higher than one month ago and 12.1 cents above what it was one year ago.

The Orange County average price has risen 11 consecutive days, increasing 8.4 cents over that span, including six-tenths of a cent on Wednesday.

"Traditionally, gas prices tend to rise in the spring before peaking sometime in May," said Jeffrey Spring of the Automobile Club of Southern California.

Mike T. Regulating us to life would be more like it. Corporations may be people (according to the Supreme Court) but actual people die when safety is left up to them.

And people die when safety is left to the government as well so whats your point?

Actually government regulation saves lives. We need more of it not less. Corporations have a very poor record of self policing their impact on the environment and health hazards. See what is happening in North Carolina right now.

The food in your local market is regulated by the government. How many food recalls would we see if it wasn't. GMAIL sidestepped government safety regulations on their cars and people died.
