Why is Fresh O.J. So Expensive in L.A.?

Hey 'Hounds - I have a serious question, maybe it belongs on another board . . . I hope you can help me figure something out - I just returned from a NYC visit where fresh squeezed OJ is around $4.50 for a 1/2 gallon. What gives? Why are we paying almost $8 bucks here in Southern California? There has to be a reason, and for the life of me I can't figure out what it might be. We have an Orange County for Pete's sake! Shouldn't reasonably priced OJ be one of our birth rights? Do I have to write to the mayor? Maybe it's just me, but this sticks in my craw (and at almost $8 per 1/2 gallon at Ralph's Downtown I guess I'll be trying to wash it down with some other beverage . . . )
