Even if ethanol is making a tiny dent in gasoline prices, seeing $5.40 on the gas station sign is enough to make anyone forget about six or nine measly cents. The $5.40 price is currently available to lucky driver in Gorda, California, south of the Bay Area on Highway 1. Two reasons for the high price: 40 miles until another gas station and pump profits pay for the town's generator, which supplies all of the electricity in the area.
Local NBC affiliate NBC11 reports that the price is high enough to get some customers to tell the station owner to go to hell. Another said the owner "should be shot for charging that much for gas." C'mon, people. It's time to stop getting mad and start getting greener.
