Why San Francisco has The Highest Gas Price In the Nation?

Someone posted a question on my Baby Boomers Yahoo Group.
So, here is my answer:

Glancing at this Median Sales Price of Existing Single-Family Homes
for Metropolitan Areas report, (compiled by the National Association
of of REALTORS®), I can see these numbers and can understand why,
these prices reflect the cost of living in each area.

2007.

San Francisco-Oakland-Fremont, CA is the 2nd highest in the nation
for at $805.4K for 2007. (up 5.5% from 2006)


San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara area is the highest in the nation at
$836.8 for 2007 (up 11.2%. from 2006)

Are you talking about gas prices or home prices? The title said "...gas prices" but the content is about the home prices. I just want to clarify. I think there's a typo.
