posted by Hannity Staff - 10.01.19

Gas prices across southern California spiked in recent days; passing $4 per gallon in Los Angeles and other cities as motorists flee the region to fill-up their tank.

“Two weeks of daily price hikes have sent the average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline well over the $4 mark across the region, even in outlying areas where prices are usually cheaper,” reports CBS Los Angeles.

“In Los Angeles County, the average price of a gallon of gas is now $4.12, up 32 cents from just last week. Orange County’s hike is slightly steeper, up 34 cents to $4.09 per gallon,” adds CBS.

Gas prices are up over 65 cents since the beginning of 2019.

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.10.19

Millions of Californians have seen a massive increase for the price of gasoline in recent days; with several stations across the state charging $4 per gallon -a cost much higher than the national average of $2.75.

“A survey of more than 5,000 gas stations conducted by AAA shows that the average price for a gallon of regular gas is now $2.75, up 11% in the last month. And the average price is already above $3 a gallon in six western states: California, Hawaii, Washington, Oregon, Nevada and Alaska,” reports KTLA.

“Four-dollar gas is the average in a couple of California counties — San Luis Obispo and Mono. Many others are within a few cents of that mark, including San Francisco, where the average price is $3.98,” adds the article.

The rising prices come as Californians may soon face a series of new taxes from local officials, with the State government weighing whether to increase fees on drinking water, tires, pain medications, and more.

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.03.19

Californian motorists continued to feel the pain at their local gasoline stations across the state this week, with new data showing prices surging and could soon reach $5 per gallon in the near future.

“The statewide average price of gasoline has soared over $4 per gallon in recent weeks – and now at least four stations there are charging more than $5, according to fuel-savings app GasBuddy,” reports USA Today.

“California is a big reason for the spike in the national average. The state’s average price of $4.09 is up 44 cents from a month ago and 46 cents from a year ago, according to AAA,” adds the article.

Experts cite the rising prices on a series of outages at several American refineries as well as increased taxes imposed on California’s residents.
