I drove by there around 3 pm while they were working on it and you could definitely smell the gas leak.

Is this where they were digging this afternoon, had two lanes blocked off and huge holes in the street?
So if there was a gas leak, they caused it.

I drove by there around 12:30pm and 2:30pm. Both times, my car filled with the smell of gas. I think the leak was discovered slightly earlier than 5:30pm…

Any fire hydrants in the area which have been acting suspiciously?

You only pay for what you use people! Get over it or move ,I don’t hear you complaining about stuff when you can flick the switch or you have hot water!

All for it March 5, 2014 at 9:32 PM

Btw, folks, PG&E doesn’t set the prices, the CPUC does. So if you don’t like it move or vote.
