Gas costs more at some California locations than the federal minimum wage

CALIFORNIA — The cost of gas at some California locations is more than the federal minimum wage. Drivers all over the United States are paying record-high prices for gas that seem to be increasing daily. One of the biggest problems, according to CBS News, is that those record highs are not evenly distributed around the country, making some gas prices in California cost more per gallon than the federal minimum hourly wage of $7.25. In California, it’s $14 an hour for minimum wage.

A Gallon of Gas Now Costs More Than the Federal Minimum Wage in These US Cities – Jon Miltimore

As nearly 40 million Americans prepare to travel for Memorial Day weekend, they’re confronted with an unpleasant reality: gasoline prices are through the roof. Last week, for the first time ever, gas prices topped $4 in every single state. On Wednesday, Florida hit a new record high—$4.57 a gallon. That’s a lot, but it pales in comparison to California, where the average price per gallon was $6.06 as of Monday. In some parts of the Golden State, however, prices are even much higher.

Fishing report: California opening weekend windy, exciting

Hello fellow anglers. What an exciting weekend it was for the California fishing opener. The weather cooperated mostly, except for the wind. I ventured down to Bridgeport Reservoir and stayed at the Bridgeport Marina. We stayed for three days and the wind blew 70% of the time. But we did get out for a while. The fishing was slow, but some nice fish were caught. The biggest of the day I saw was a 9.9-pound rainbow from the shore, I also talked with a couple anglers that had a 3-pound and a 5-pound rainbows they caught while trolling.
