You ever notice a pattern in the high to low gas price map and voter demographics?

I've noticed a clear distinct pattern between the high to low gas prices and where people vote for big oil bankrolled politicians and big oil bankrolled policies and where people don't.

And stop scapegoating the fuel taxes because that is inly an dime or 2 give or take. Not over a dollar difference. There is definitely some politically targeted price gouging that goes into play.

I thought you meant gas is usually cheaper in more affluent areas.

[@523909,Crazywaterspring] it's cheaper in Areas where people vote for big oil bought and paid for political candidates and brutally expensive in Areas where big oil companies just can't buy the elections.

I hear what you're saying but the other part of that is demand. More rural areas have less demand which means lower costs. More crowded areas typically have higher taxes because there's more need to turn that money around for things like road repairs.

I always thought it had to do with affordability. Santa Monica pays $.50 - 1.00 more than just a few miles away in Pacoima.

Probably had more to do with density and wealth tbh.
