LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Is $5.00 gas almost here?

A viral video posted on YouTube apparently depicts a Southland gas station selling premium unleaded for $4.99 a gallon.

The video allegedly captures a sign from a Mobil station in West Covina late Monday, which would easily make it the most expensive gas in the nation.

A representative from the station would not confirm the pricing.

If anyone has information on the pricing, please contact the CBS LA Street Team.

    4.99 and 9/10 is $5.00/gal.

  2. Diane says:

    JK: No it isn’t. Fill up a 10 gallon tank, you pay 49.99, not 50.00.;

      Get real lady. It IS the better part of five bucks. We’re talking about 9/10th’s of a penny here.

        Every penny is a prisoner!


    US GOVERNMENT can fix the high gas prices but they chose a different path. They rather fund lots of $$$ to services & programs for illegals & Trillions of $$$$$$$ to stupid NASA space programs.

    Opponents will say, “Well, we don’t have the technologies to do the drilling.” That is a full load of Bullsh!t considering the $$$$$$$$ US Government wasted on services & programs for illegals & NASA, & funding to ISRAEL & Egypt & other nations..

    Take BP for example, they’re drilling off the shores South Eastern US & selling to US consumers the OIL they just drilled offshore USA territory & making $$$$$$ off US consumers.

    The Union 76 station at the corner of Barrington and Pico has had the same prices for well over a week. Even when prices were lower, this station is always $.25-50 higher per gallon than others, including Chevron and Shell.

    This station has had that price weeks ago. I just figured it was a front for a drug ring, why else go there?

  6. ZZ says:

    Stupid illegals are the blame for this!

      They are the blame for everything.

  11. Mary says:

    I wonder is anyone actually pumps gas at this station? Don’t be surprised if by summer all pumps climb to $5.00 a gallon. Times are tough enough! (Sigh) Unfortunately I don’t have any information to offer CBS news in regards to the gas prices at this particular gas station; however, the Antelope Valley is not too far behind. We may be seeing the CBS News Van out this way too.

    I thought the high gas prices were the fault of Bush & the “oil men” in the White House… What now Lefty?

  13. Will says:

    Acutally i drive by this gas station everyday. There gas prices been up in the mid $4 all year around. Just this pass two weeks it climb to $5. Never understood why it was that high but still see people filling up there when there’s a shell across the street that’s much cheaper……
