On New Year’s Eve, gas stations around California were crowded as motorists rushed to fill up their tanks. They had heard the fear mongering from the oil industry that proclaimed a price hike of up to 76 cents was to be expected on New Years Day.
People all over the California are rushing to the gas station to make sure they start the New Year on a full tank.
“I read about it in the paper,” said Randy Salbaugh. Salbaugh made a special trip to the gas station. “I’m gonna run around, get all three vehicles, get’em all filled up and go into the New Year with a full gas tank,” he said.
