Parking for MJ Memorial -- Really Hot Spots

Supply + demand + Michael Jackson = parking madness!!!

Tickets for the Michael Jackson memorial on Tuesday are tough to come by -- but parking may be even tougher. We talked to a couple of valets at the Holiday Inn across the street from Staples Center. They told us that guests will have first dibs on parking, but after that it will cost $200 for a spot -- and maybe even higher. Parking for non-guests can usually run up to $45/day.

Now get this -- a few residents of local apartments tell us they are going to try and sell their garage spots for the day and just leave their car at work for the day.

The lesson as always -- public transportation.
