Gas prices shift into overdrive
SOUTHLAND – (INT) – Don’t look now, but gasoline prices are in overdrive at the fastest pace this year.
In California, the average price for a gallon of 87 octane regular is $5.51. In Riverside, the Automobile Club of Southern California reports the average at $5.50 for a gain of 39-cents over last month.
Diesel prices are also being affected.
The Auto Club explains there is a combination of regional and global factors at play:
-Regional refinery outages
-Increasing crude oil prices following deadly flooding in Libya, which will temporarily disrupt oil exports from that OPEC nation
