LOS ANGELES (AP) - Gov. Jerry Brown is taking action in an effort to drive down the cost of gasoline as California drivers cope with record-breaking prices at the pump. For the third straight day Monday, the statewide average price for a gallon of regular rose to an all-time high, hitting $4.668, according to AAA.
That topped Sunday's price of $4.655 and Saturday's price of $4.6140, which broke the previous record high of $4.6096 per gallon set on June 19, 2008.
Due to a temporary reduction in supply, California gas prices in recent days have surpassed those in Hawaii to become the highest in the nation.

Comment....Ahh...A name from the past... Jerry Brown, Linda Ronstadt's ex-boyfriend. Do you remember that and what happened? Bear in mind I don't watch the news so I'm bound to make some mistakes but so far I think he is the first Politician that is saying something about the gas price issue in this country. The others obviously don't think its an issue. I say its the number one reason that the economy and the United States is going down the drain. But that's just me. The millions of immigrants (illegals) in Jerry's State must really have him backed against the wall. Not to mention the taxpayers who have to foot the bill for all the medical care, welfare and gas for all those immigrants (illegals). There is something really wrong with what is going on with the way Washington doesn't care. Hmmm I wonder what that is??? The millionaires who are running for political office in this country obviously don't care how much it hurts to put gas in your car or truck a few times a week to be able to afford just to go to work. At home here I noticed that since all the tourists went home... I live on the shoreline of Connecticut, is that people have slowed down to 60 and 65 on route 95 and of coarse there aren't so many cars. Someone is feeling the pain. Can you imagine the credit cards that are maxed out and the bills that are not being paid just from last summer?. How about this winter and the people who heat those big beautiful homes with oil? I believe its too late now and the price of gas will never go down. What is happening in California will happen here soon in the Northeast and all around the country. I'm afraid that after the election the price of gas will go to 6 or 7 or maybe 8 dollars a gallon. I can feel it in the cold, cold wind......
