Here is the sentence again:

Julina would never again agree to go out to dinner with James, he expected her to buy her own meal, tip the waitress, and chip in for gas.

Julina would never again agree to go out to dinner with James is a main clause. He expected her ... begins a second main clause. To connect two main clauses with just a comma is to commit a major sentence error, a comma splice.

If you were to use the comma with for, a coordinating conjunction, you would fix the problem.

Go to the next sentence.
