More Questions Than Answers on Fuel Reserve

Re: "State Ponders Keeping Its Own Fuel Reserve," July 27:

Who are the drivers who will have access to this gasoline? From whom will California purchase this gasoline? Who is going to pay for the procurement of this gasoline stockpile? What price will drivers pay per gallon to procure this stockpile?

Who is going to pay for these storage facilities? How long will it take to construct these storage facilities? How will this gasoline be distributed? Will California set up its own chain of service stations? How will Gray Davis know when it is time to start selling gasoline?
