California continues to break its records
California has never seen gasoline prices this high.
American Automobile Association reported the second day of record-breaking prices Monday, with an average price of $4.682 a gallon for regular, unleaded gas. That was up six-tenths from Sunday’s average price, which broke the previous record of $4.671, set in October.
Monday’s price far exceeded the national average of $3.415 a gallon. But typically, the Western states are all in the $3.628 to $4.682 range, according to AAA.
Don’t bet on things getting much cheaper in Nevada. The home to Las Vegas and Reno is seeing an average price of $3.974 a gallon.
The average price in Washington state is $3.874. The average price in Oregon, where, by the way, gas station employees pump all the gas, is $3.782 a gallon.
Gas generally averages between $3 and $3.50 a gallon in most of the country.
The cheapest gas? That’s in Oklahoma, where it’s $2.998 a gallon.
