All across the state, Californians have been flocking to gas stations and stocking up on gas. Why? On Wednesday, Nov. 1, gas prices are set to increase.

The tax comes from California Senate Bill 1 (which will be referred to as SB1 from here on), which was signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown in April 2017. The excise tax increase will raise unleaded gasoline prices by 12 cents per gallon, with diesel prices seeing a rise of 16 cents.

SB1 predicts that the tax will generate $52 billion dollars in revenue for the state. The state will be using these funds to repair roads and improve statewide public transport. The revenue will be evenly split between improvements and repairs of the state highway system and funding for city and county road systems.

SB1 aims to make 98% of California’s state highway roads passable by 2027. According to the bill, this means repairing or replacing:

How to Improve Your Credit Score

Whether it’s buying a car, finding a place to rent, or purchasing a home, insufficient credit can be a nasty surprise for those who aren’t prepared. Simply put, your credit score and report tells potential lenders how likely it is for you to pay them back. With this in mind, the most direct way to achieve a good credit score is by being a reliable borrower and establishing a history of successfully paying back your debts. However, this is easier said than done.

What Determines a Credit Score

First, let’s discuss credit scores and how they are determined. Creditors use a statistical formula to review the data in your files and compare it to credit performance of consumers with similar profiles. A credit scoring system awards points for each factor. The total of your points determines your credit score and gives lenders a prediction of how you may repay your loan.

Credit scores seek to answer five questions for lenders.

  • Do you pay your bills on time? – Borrowers who don’t pay their bills on time are not considered to be reliable borrowers by lenders. Having an account sent to a collections agency, ...

The Historic Homes of San Diego
