Doesn't make sense, but I see it all over town. One of the worst offenders is the "Shameful Shell" at Olympic & Fairfax, where regular gas is $4.999 now - used to be $5-something. And get this - I spotted them getting a tanker of United Oil once - cheap stuff!!! There are a couple of 76 stations in Beverly Hills that always charge the max for gas - $4.399 regular at Crescent & Santa Monica Blvd. Guess the owners aren't interested in volume sales, but I see suckers in there filling up all the time.

Think the 76 at Oxnard & Hazeltine was owned by AAA Petroleum. They own other 76 stations in the Valley, but the company is on hard times. AAA 76 at Vineland/Vanowen in North Hollywood has closed down! The company appears to be getting what it can and I suspect all the stations will close, be sold or rebranded in the near future. Red Dot on Sherman and Hayvenhurst is turning into a Chevron as I write, and Chevron also took over some low-volume 76 stations around the Valley (Oxnard/Woodman, Laurel Cyn/Strathern).

Hi Gogo, Sorry My bad. It is Edward Bernays. http://vimeo.com/67977038. This is about an hour long but very interesting. My point is that the car companies, thru advertising, create a desire to own cars even if they are possible defective. Again I apologize for the typo.

GM has the most patents regarding hydrogen fuel cell technology and Honda is close behind. Last summer Honda and GM teamed up, so I can't wait to see what comes out of it. GM's Project Driveway has racked up over 3M miles and hundreds of drivers giving input.

Great comment on the wind and solar industry. I have been making similar comments for a couple of years now whenever I see similar articles. Without subsideis these forms of energy are a failure. And, whne the companies go bust they leave behind huylking and rusting eyesores that polute the visual atmosphere. and also as you stated much of the equipment is or will be produced overseas where labor is cheaper so the jobs promised never really materialize.

I pumped dallfo who sits on top of me on the front page. Nice to see my friend pinkelefant here.

I pump articles that I consider interesting. There's a big debate going on in Colorado right now about red light cameras. Yours was a good article.
