Without subsidizing the cost, or artificially inflating supply, you can't have gas prices artificially low.

And yes, the price of gas is too high, but that is the result of speculation, OPEC and governments thinking they need to tax everything that moves... And in the case of CA, requiring a special blend that means our market exists in a bubble.
