Buy gas before you get outside of LA. Gas is expensive in the desert.

I'd leave early if I were you. It gets really hot crossing the desert in the sun during the summer. You can plan to stop in Barstow for food, etc. because Barstow is the only real "city" between LA and Vegas. Baker has fast food and gas but not much else.
