Just another day in Sonoma County in search of another angle on the possible rise in gas prices due to the Chevron Petroleum Fire (among other circumstances) in Richmond Monday evening.  This led me to the Arco gas station on Brookwood Ave. and Fourth Street in Santa Rosa where I ran across this very protective dog.

George Hailey of Sonoma prepares to fill up his gas tank at the Arco AM PM gas station at Brookwood Ave and Fourth Street in Santa Rosa, Tuesday August 7, 2012. as Raider the dog keeps an eye out. Consumers are expected to pay more for a gallon of gas in the coming days due in part to the Richmond Chevron fire Monday evening. (Kent Porter / Press Democrat) 2012
