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.
