LOS ANGELES TIMES CARTOON: Underwater on the Car

I draw cartoons for The Los Angeles Times about issues related to California and the Southland (metro Los Angeles).

This week: Gas prices in California are at a record high for the third day in a row, up slightly more than a cent overnight at $4.668 for a gallon of regular just as motorists start their work week. The cost of fueling up has soared in recent days, as refinery and pipeline problems squeezed supply. The steep and sudden run-up caused Gov. Jerry Brown to call Sunday for a quick infusion of winter-blend gasoline.

  1. Interesting how this happens just after Obama mentions Exxon Mobil in the debate.

    Ted, are you so opposed to my conqest-for-profit, but-for-average-citizens-as-opposed-to-the-1%, that you are pulling the whole discussion off the page? This has happened a couple of times now. Just a couple of days ago you had a cartoon up, I commented, and now the whole thing is gone.

    • What whole thing is gone, aaronwilliams135?

      I haven’t deleted any discussions whatsoever so I don’t know what’s up. There is the dreaded Wednesday cartoon bug, in which the next week’s cartoon accidentally goes up early, so I restore the correct cartoon, but the comments should remain.

  2. Hey Ted. Yeah, a few days ago, there was a war-related cartoon, of course I don’t remember which cartoon it was, (how helpful is that?!), there were a few comments, I was more or less responding to Michaelwme, he had said something about how a war against the Gulf States would not be profitable. I said it could be very profitable if we took and kept the oil for the benefit of the taxpayer. Of course I said it–you know–fancier. Anyway, when I came back to see if anyone had responded, the cartoon and all those comments were gone. And they are still gone, I just checked.

    I guess it might have been the Wednesday bug thing. Or maybe, my awesome insights are so provocative that some govt blockhead hacked us. Haha, that would be cool.

    Cheers to you, my friend.

  3. p.s. Just for completeness sake, I should mention that this isn’t the first time this has happened. I think it is the third time. And it is always comments of mine along this same theme that appear to lead to an entries dissapearance. That’s why I asked. Didn’t know if I was going too far or what.
