California’s Cap and Trade program, which is the buying of selling of pollution credits, will increase the price of gas and diesel in the state by $0.15/gallon starting next year.

Oh, and did we mention, 25% of all Cap and Trade monies collected will go to build high-speed rail. Forget about our dilapidated roads and bridges…who needs goods movement anyway?
