Every weekday morning, Penny Griego and I track the latest gas price averages. This morning, according to AAA, the average price for a gallon of regular was in the Los Angeles/Long Beach $4.39. That’s 11 cents more than Friday, 16 cents more than Thursday! What’s worse; as our prices skyrocket, the rest of the country is enjoying lower averages. What gives? Is it offline refineries and a smaller inventories, or is it “something else?”
Tune in tomorrow morning 5-9am for not only the new averages, but analysis from reporters and oil industry experts.
