I WAS ABSOLUTELY RIGHT IN MY READING OF ... YOUR PREVIOUS MAP ... SO YOU WENT OFF TO FIND MAPS THAT GIVE SLIGHTLY MORE SUPPORT FOR YOUR CONSPIRACY THEORY.
Once again, the RED signifies an extremely wide price range of \$2.75 - \$3.70. An extremely broad range across several states.
Much too broad for anyone to draw any conclusions. \$2.75 is close to the nationwide average. \$2.75 is not really much of a "problem". \$3.75 is a problem.

But yet that did not stop you from foolishly proclaiming "map demonstrates that it is not even just a Californian problem".

Map has been drilled down to give you a clearer picture of CA and neighboring state Arizona, which receives its gas from the very same CA refineries .

Please do compare CA and Arizona. A \$1.00 difference when it should be \$0.20 difference.

Hope that has cleared up your confusion. The surest way to kill the economy is with high energy prices.

Let me know if you require more facts.

my guess...

line1: (square+pentagon+hexagon) * 3 = 45
> suggests that square=4, pengaton=5, hexagon=6 (4+5+6=15)

line2: 2x platanos(4) + (square+pentagon+hexagon) = 23
> suggests that platanos(4) = (23-15)/2 = 4

line3: platanos(4) + 2x shotclock(3:00) = 10
> suggests that shotclock(3:00) = (10-4)/2 = 3

line4: shotclock(2:00) + platanos(3) + platanos(3)*(pentagon+hexagon) = 2+3+3*(5+6) =38

QED... i'll have a platano now !
i got the same, man. but, lolololololol man...............urs' not a 'guess', it's an essay!!! r u a software engineer/programmer/developer or as such:?))............my elder son's 1 of those. we need milx more of them. super easy to find job after uni n well paid..........he even got the job 3 or 4 mths before graduation. i reckon all the uni students doing programming are booked out by those companies long b4 finishing uni.............................

I suppose as we turn into election year we can expect a relentless barrage of implicitly Trump posts from you.

The surest way to kill the economy is a trade war that America can't win, which is why America is now currently begging for peace.

Californians are among the richest people in America, so slightly higher gas prices are mostly irrelevant to them and the wider economy.

This has nothing to do with the price of petrol.

You looked at a map of 8 Western states with a huge price range of \$2.75 - \$3.75 and then somehow managed to erroneously conclude that high gas prices exist in all of those states and that CA is not particularly being hit hard. Quite a feat.

But I am glad to have cleared it up for you.

But now that you have brought up Trump, he has just successfully negotiated a Phase 1 Trade Deal with China.
Stock markets are very happy. All Americans are grateful. Let us see what happens tomorrow with the formal sign off.

America lost phase 1 of the trade deal with China, just like it lost phase 1 of the nuclear deal with North Korea.

Trump is a loser who declares every loss a triumph.

What are you talking about? We set a new record today and last quarter created like 240k new jobs (canada lost 80k)

Do you have a reference? I can't see the figure quoted anywhere.

The problem is now mainly low wages growth, in any event. No spare cash, then no spending!

The U.S. stock markets are the ultimate arbiter. If they are hitting record highs, it means that Trump has struck a great deal.
What part of "all-time record high" does Bartelby not understand?

Nope

Edit actually i was wrong. It was 266k in november, not the last quarter.

"The U.S. economy gained 266,000 jobs in Nov. 2019, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. There were strong jobs gains across the board. "

Apparently the good figure is mostly due to a GM strike finishing:

• The end of the GM strike had a big effect, boosting employment in motor vehicles and parts by 41,300, part of an overall 54,000 gain in manufacturing.

Only a fool takes monthly statistics seriously!

The Trump administration seems to have reached terms with Beijing over a “Phase One” China trade deal, which President Trump will surely tout as a victory for himself and the United States. But if the president strikes the deal on the terms being reported, he will actually be making a huge concession to Beijing that achieves few U.S. goals and is so bad that even Trump will have trouble spinning it as a political win.

Thursday afternoon, several media outlets reported that the United States and China have agreed to a limited, interim trade deal that will surely boost markets in the short term and provide a temporary de-escalation of the U.S.-China trade war. For more than two months, sources briefed on the negotiations told me, the two sides had been stuck. The Trump administration wanted to freeze tariffs in exchange for Beijing agreeing to purchase more U.S. agricultural products and granting more market access for U.S. financial firms. But China wouldn’t sign off, demanding the White House sweeten the pot by offering substantial tariff rollbacks as well.

On Thursday, the Wall Street Journal reported the Trump team caved on that huge point. If true, the result would be a deal that immediately relieves major pressure on the Chinese economy in exchange for future promises the Chinese side may never fulfill. Beijing’s concessions also don’t address the bulk of the structural issues and abuses that make Chinese economic aggression a long-term threat to the U.S. economy.
