Gas Prices Hit $4 In California
SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- The American Automobile Association of California
says some drivers are now paying $4 a gallon for regular unleaded gasoline.
Crude oil prices hit an all-time high Wednesday, above $98 a barrel and
analysts say with worldwide oil demand rising -- it is still not clear
just how high prices will go.
In Salinas, AAA recorded an average of $3.39 per gallon. Santa Cruz is
at an average of $3.37 per gallon.
KSBW checked and found gas in Gorda, south of Big Sur, is even higher.
Drivers there are paying $5 for gas.
Over the past two weeks gas has gone up 15 cents in California alone,
according to AAA.
