On the Price of Gas

According to the L.A. Times, gas prices have suddenly shot up in California as a result of refinery shortages down there.  Says the newspaper:  "Friday's average price for a gallon of unleaded regular in California is $4.486 a gallon, which is by far the highest in the nation."

Obviously, the L.A. Times and whoever provides them with information, is not a regular visitor to Point Roberts...  Although it's possible that the Times, like me, is not sure what is the exact factor to use in order to convert liter prices to gallon equivalents.   

And why don't we ever get per gallon prices, anyway?  Because then we would OF 
COURSE know how much more we pay than those in ROTUS?

Today, at the Shell station, regular is listed at $1.249/liter.  Which would, according to my converter, mean $4.73/gallon.  Somewhat higher than Los Angeles' piddling $4.48/gallon, which is getting national news coverage and all that.  Poor babes!
