Please tell me if your country is not up there (I took some countries that I think I remember some members being from) and I will add your country to the poll.

I don't think California is on the list, but I put U.S.A.

I'm from the US.  You know, you probably should've put up an "other" option in this poll.

I saw a random statistic a few years ago about economies and their ranking.
#1 United States
#2 Japan
#3 California, U.S.

I've never been to California. I live in New Hampshire all the way on the opposite coast. Very interesting numbers lemonoman.  :)

That's ok. I have edited the poll to include the countries demanded.

I don't think California is number 3, maybe more like 5 or 6.

Mitch,
It was a really old statistic and from a sketchy source. But still either way it has to be in the top 10 which means it has a big economy.

How much does gas cost for any of Californians? It's around $2.76 over here last I checked. It probably went up though.
