The problem here is that there are laws that are causing this

mess and perpetuating it.

If California simply repealed it's laws about how much stations can hike prices, they would be able to raise them to maintain their margins. Gas could flow, though it would certainly be more expensive.

Now, instead, it doesn't flow at all.

Can't be had at ANY price.
