Although this obviously made a good platform for you to launch a tangential rant, this happens to be a case where supply and demand are at work. There was a pipeline problem and there was an electrical power failure to a refinery, the combination of which has left CA with a short term gasoline supply shortage. It also appears you have no idea that the three QEs are fundamentally different and have had little impact on oil futures prices compared to the essentially negative interest rates now offered on government bonds.

The solution of this problem is trivial and is left as an exercise for the reader.
