  • California fuel Prices at the pump

    On the way to Long Beach this morning for Molly Brown's bottom painting, I stopped for fuel at the only dock in our harbor. 25 gallons of gas totaled $116.16. Receipt looked something like our local phone bill with taxes and fees added on:
    Regular gas @ $3.66/gal
    Fed Excise Tax @ $0.18/gal
    Lust Tax @ 000.x = $0.02 total on bill
    Fed Oil Spill fee = $0.05 total on bill
    CA State Excise tax $0.42/gal
    AB32 Gas FFR Fee = $0.07 total on bill
    Lead Poison Prevention fee $0.03 total on bill
    LCFS Compliance Fee $0.13/gal
    Green House Fee $0.13/gal
    Sales tax $3.13 total on bill
    Total taxes and fees: $24.66, $0.99/gal.

    Is this a great Sanctuary State or what?

    The cruise liner QE2 moves only six inches for each gallon of diesel fuel that it burns.

    Port Orchard Marina has ethanol-free fuel for $3.64/gal, all taxes & hidden fees included.

        All right - ‘Great state’ is a bit much, but it’s clear and 75 today.
        LUST tax is what the politicians charge us mere mortals for doing something we enjoy, in this case boating.

          Speaking of hidden taxes has anyone noticed they are charging $8.95 to "report of Sale" with the state now when selling a vehicle? They do say it does not apply to boats.....YET!

            Yeah, just caught that one when transferring a car title to my son. Another way for Big Brother to get in our pockets. What a Rip off. They already collected a fee from the purchaser. When does it stop?

              In the state of Washington the seller owns the plates and stay with the seller. That makes the buyer have to get the title changed in order to get new plates. That way the seller doesn't need to report a sale and get charged that $8.95. Do not let your plates go with anything you sell, including trailers!!!

                Is that really possible? Then the buyer would have to get temporary plates before they could even haul it away.

                  All the buyer needs is a bill of sale and a copy of the last registration and the buyer can drive it home.

                    If that’s the case, then problem solved, $8.95 saved, and another license plate to adorn the shop wall!

                      What guarantees you that some jack hole does not register it and adds his own plates? Best thing to do is go to the DMV with the purchaser!

                      The guy that bought my old C20 Sunday says he is going to register it Saturday and send me a pic of registration. If so I will not waste my $8.95 on these greedy bastards. If he does not I will bend over and pay the $8.95 for my protection.

                        For a vehicle, yes. But they want the $8.95 for report of sale for a trailer too! Since a trailer has to be towed, the tow vehicle’s liability covers a trailer. The report of sale protects the seller from potential liability. So this shouldn’t be an issue with a trailer. Other than for an abandoned trailer that had been impounded, you’d be on the hook for the impound fees. Having the Report of Sale portion of the title on hand though, with the buyer’s name and the date, etc., could be produced at that point and possibly relieve you of the responsibility.

                        Still, I’m going to bring this up with my state representatives. Seriously, I am....

                          It's all these little things that don't effect enough people at once so they just get away with it!
