    California's 2006 greenhouse gas emissions law?

    You vote liberal! You live liberal.

    No whining, pay the higher gas prices.

    @ Worf. Amen brother! They got what you voted for! Enjoy your "green" but very expensive state! Of course, its the poor who are harmed the most! Rich Hollywood elites couldn't care less about them! And they wonder why there is an economic disparity! They created it, period!

    I am willing to pay higher prices for lots of things as long as I don't have to live in certain places.

    "A nonpartisan analysis says prices are likely to increase by 13 cents to 20 cents per gallon by 2020."

    With gasoline prices expected to hit $6 to $8 a gallon by 2020 on its own without greenhouse gas limit costs, this carbon "burden" will be about 3 percent of its total cost... Even if gas prices magically stay around $4 a gallon by 2020, it will be about 5 percent... please!

    We're paying more to keep our military in the Mideast just to maintain the "free" access to oil from hostile, terrorist-based countries.

    @ Mark B. Good for you! Don't you feel badly for the poor people who can't afford your higher prices? Oh I forgot, you have the nation's largest amount of welfare recipients, high unemployment, the highest taxes and the most debt of any state in America. Its working very well for you then! Enjoy your bubble!

    Unfortunately, many of the poor vote liberal, thinking it will increase benefits.

    So if I have any hope of actually KNOWING anything, I should live in ...Idaho? And gosh knows there are no poor in Texas, so I guess that might work too.

    Nearly all my neighbors moved here from California and you should hear the stories they tell! I welcome them here and none of them want to go back, for some strange reason! The most interesting thing is, all of them used to be California taxpayers! Now guess where their tax money goes?

    Many California immigrants is Texas as well.

    Probably they same for Utah, Arizona, and Colorado.

    California is a beautiful state, rich in natural and human resources. Too bad some of its residents express such disdain for people who do not live there or who disagree with them politically.
