Gas prices in LA are out of control. A good deal for regular right now is about 3.50. A small handful of gas stations around town though will constantly sell for a FULL TWO DOLLARS higher than typical, it's widely talked about and nobody seems to know why. They aren't near an airport so it's not taking advantage of the many wealthy foreigners. I get gas at a Shell on my block right now that is $3.50 and 20 blocks down the same street this Shell station is $5.50.
