Drop traffic-fee plan

Submitted by News Desk on Tue, 08/05/2008 - 10:00pm


IN ITS LATEST PLAN to make life a bit more difficult, San Francisco is considering charging a rush-hour fee for motorists entering, and perhaps leaving, the city's downtown.

Drivers using a four-square-mile area that includes the Financial District, Civic Center and South of Market neighborhood would have to pay a fee of $1 to $4 during rush hours.

Adolfo Cabral lived and worked much of his life in San Francisco until housing prices forced him a decade ago to move across the Bay to western Berkeley.

SAN RAMON — Chevron Corp. rocketed to record quarterly profits of $5.98 billion, the oil giant reported Friday, but analysts warned that the San Ramon firm's profit gusher may ebb if sky-high oil prices morph into a temporary oil bubble.

Profits for the second quarter jumped 11 percent from a year ago, Chevron said. Yet the per-share profit of $2.90 fell short of Wall Street's expectations of $3.03. Chevron's shares fell 25 cents, or 0.3 percent, to finish at $84.31.
