California gas prices skyrocketing again



Gas prices in Southern California are soaring once again.

Residents in the Golden State are now paying more than $2 above the national average for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline, according to AAA.

The national average stands at $3.73 per gallon, while that number rises to $5.80 in California.

Prices are even higher if you live in the Los Angeles-Long Beach and Orange County areas.

L.A.-Long Beach

  • $5.84 per gallon of regular as of Sept. 26
  • 41 cents more than a week ago
  • 55 cents more than a month ago
  • $1.43 more than a year ago

Orange County

  • $5.83 per gallon of regular as of Sept. 26
  • 44 cents more than a week ago
  • 63 cents more than a month ago
  • $1.47 more than a year ago

Prices are a little cheaper, around $5.70 per gallon, in Riverside and San Bernardino counties.

Strict environmental regulations that raise prices more than a dollar a gallon, along with the second highest gas tax in the nation, are contributing factors in California’s prices always being among the nations highest.
