Airing on Wednesday, July 22, 2015: Global oil prices are half what they were a year ago, but you’d never know it in California, where regular gas is $4.50 a gallon. We explain California’s broken market, where special requirements for anti-smog gas blends limits the state to gas refined locally, and environmental  pressure has limited the number of refineries.  Next: "I am Cait," premieres this Sunday. The docu-series that chronicles former Olympic athlete Bruce Jenner's transformation into the female Caitlyn promises to be a ratings blockbuster for the E! Network. Where would E! be without the Kardashians? Marketplace explores.
