Gas Prices Continue To Rise

Shortages are forcing prices up in some locales. What's up where you buy?


If you've already filled your gas tank count yourself lucky. 

Some stations in Southern California were selling gas as high as $5.69 a gallon Friday morning as the state continued to suffer a price spike.

"We are looking at the highest California prices ever," Tom Kloza of the Oil Price Information Service told the Los Angeles Daily News.

The article blames the shortages on a closed refinery, a contaminated fuel line, and the fact that California gas isn't exchangeable with out-of-state fuels because of our stricter environmental laws.

Local prices have been rising but are still a lot lower than the panic levels in the south. According to gasbuddy.com, the ARCO at 15135 Hesperian had the best price in the area at $4.21 a gallon this morning.
