Raining on Gasoline Consumption

Just about every East Coast transplant likes to gripe about how Californians "can't drive in the rain." Well now David Hackett, president of energy consulting firm Stillwater Associates is taking that maxim one step further.

According to Hackett, it's not only that we can't drive in the rain, we DON'T drive in the rain.

The stats are in and California gas consumption was down 4.5% in January, which directly correlates to the amount of rain parts of the state received. A dubious theory? You make the call...
