  • Azusa Station

    Why did this station raise prices to 2.03 from 1.90??

    I just don't get it..... gasoline went down to $1.79 and NG prices are higher?

    Re: Azusa Station

    If I'm correct, Azusa is a So Cal Gas Company station. Their prices are rate-regulated by the CPUC. To calculate the pump price they take their commodity price and then add a component to recover the cost of compression (including the cost of the station itself), and a rate-regulated profit. There is little or no room for adjustment.

    As NG prices increase for the winter, their pump prices will also increase. It's the reason why So Cal Gas sites stay low when other providers adjust to "market prices."

      Is the calculation any different now that CE is running the SCGas stations?

        Re: Azusa Station

        Is CE now running all of the SoCalGas locations?

        I know that some CE stations have been built along side existing SoCalGas yards (i.e., Santa Ana), but when I last filled at SoCalGas in Garden Grove, it was still strictly a SoCalGas location.

          I guess not all of them. But they did turn over Azusa, Van Nuys Base and Canoga Park.

            The CNG stations at So Cal. bases that are operated by outside entities are not regulated by the PUC. Only the ones that are operated by So. Cal. them selfs.

              Same thing happened at my local station. It went from 1.904 to 2.027. Now the CE station in Moreno Valley is 38 cents cheaper.

                  Yeah, the Azusa station is STILL at $2.05 per GGE. I found that CE in Pasadean is $1.49!

                  though I went there on literal fumes last week only to find their only 3,000 psi pump was inop. I was peddling the car back to Azusa.

                  I want to call the operator of the Azusa pump and tell them everyone is going to other locations because they are charging nearly 30% more for the same product....but I suspect it will do zero good

                  Smile....

                    Correct , it will do zero. So Cal Gas station price is PUC regulated and only changes with commody price. C.E. is un-regulated and can charge as much or as little they want.
