Thanks so much now -- California's gas price crisis as we've been telling you prices at the public Golden State had just exploded.
It dirty gas to the rescue governor Jerry Brown has -- -- winds elect gas stations start selling the winter blend of gasoline a month early.
Because there's planning -- it.
Even though the winter -- creates more pollution.
Which is supposed to -- -- until the end of the month by the way when temperatures are cooler sacrificing the environment to solve the problem you.
Californians would get on their bikes instead I don't now let's turn to -- us.
Former president paper Arnold Schwarzenegger for more on this.
I'd be little sarcastic but I think you know what Californians -- deserve it I'm so surprised.
Rather than carpooling rather -- bicycles rather than telecommuting and working from home.
They are ushering in this dirty blended gasoline has more butane admit to get some relief what do you thank.
Well my defense I did ride my bicycle to the studio eight days now and I'm sure that I don't believe you really.
I -- we continue right after this guy Harry am dead.
But will give give Governor -- credit either we often you -- -- -- gets criticized for siding with the environmentalists against the consumers against businesses.
Hi this time he went the other way I think it was good for him good for US centers were looking into this -- we have this delicate balance -- -- wanna protect the environment we're very proud of the beautiful landscape.
How here in California but we also want to make sure we don't -- businesses and so that that that that delicate balance is always hard to achieve I think of around and I.
They can not believe you're making this argument I mean that it's completely ridiculous first of all drivers have only themselves to blame.
This was a referendum to have this special cocktail -- gasoline that so expensive and it's so -- it not only that.
In 2015 it's getting words.
I mean there's another proposition that came in with the standards are gonna get even higher.
Tightening the stranglehold around drivers that you're talking about mean voters have only themselves to blame for this situation and now they're getting relief with this little -- -- I think it's predict.
While nobody else to keep in mind you know win -- get temperatures do cool down and right now it's about 75 and sunny across this case -- not quite there.
When temperatures -- down this winter blend does not have the same effect as it would the summertime that's what we can use in the wintertime because the heat is lower it didn't have the ozone -- You're eating my bring EM out early in order and get relief for the -- you we have great do not.
-- -- -- Yeah I think look I honestly we're always criticize or being too environmental here and being you know not paying attention -- the business is not think that's a job creation because we're crazy -- Who now -- let me go the other way and -- asked -- driver until you're getting strangle some that are gonna suddenly throw the environment the wolf it's one or the other my friend.
Well I think it's more the other for the critics from the East Coast are always say -- -- to looney tunes out here.
Doing wrong and ask you this quarter we actually did the right thing we actually why you support around he -- why do you support a repeal of these -- -- this special -- -- planet gasoline or at least not an increase of the standard than 2015 and would you sport that.
Well that's a -- different conversation your -- -- we have the highest gas prices in the nation here about twenty cents higher than the national average.
We have the highest taxes on any measure here and yeah I -- not this is it.
This is probably a little politically motivated keep in mind that -- on the on the ballot this fall over 200 local tax hikes in the governor has a fifty billion dollar tax -- so.
I think the leaders of the -- wanna make sure the consumers known voters know they're doing all they can't to cut back on tax on gas -- Gosh they're not doing all they can you gotta get rid of this once and for all -- I love you thanks for coming on I mean I know what I'm tying a longtime California native I grew up there I moved back there.
You know I know all about the states I'm I'm criticizing my own folks but thanks for coming on I appreciate -- -- the.
