It’s been PSIA deep here this week, examiners rodeo .
Bridgeport, Death Valley & Mendocino are the most expensive places to buy gas in CA.Sonora Pass, which saves about 40 minutes and 50 miles between San Jose and Mammoth compared to taking Carson Pass and Gardnerville, re-opened on Mon 11/15. Trip is still 5 1/2 hrs without stops. I'd probably only use it on return as I spend night in South Lake Tahoe then get up early enough to be at Mammoth near opening and fill-up on less expensive Nevada gas. These were gas prices in Bridgeport and Lee Vining last week.

View attachment 148749 Ebbetts Pass also re-opened, but is not recommended to save any time.
Panamint Springs? We were there quite few years ago and couldn't believe how much gas was.Most expensive gas I ever bought, at the time, was at the western entrance to death valley. Only bought enough to get to Beatty. They didn't even have a restroom available for my wife.
Living higher than any other Californian would be saying a lot.Job available for someone ! This guy has lived at the top of the Mammoth Gondola for 18 years ! An employee who wants to leave in 2 years.
He has the power to shut the gondola down in wind or bad weather. Sometimes he is by himself for 5 days. Hired by Dave McCoy and the ski
area doesn't know how to replace him !
eastern sierra had the most expensive gas out of any region I’ve seen, but a road-side inn in Big Sur takes the cake for most expensive gas I’ve ever seen.I always though Lee Vining was the most expensive gas I had ever seen in the lower 48. Bridgeport always seemed a little less. YMMV
