Drivers in the Bay Area have had a steady plateau of gas prices stabilized at $3 a gallon or less. Well, that isn't the case anymore.
Gas prices are rising and flirting with a $4 a gallon price point expected by Memorial Day.
“Demand for gasoline this March was very strong, closer to the demand typically seen during the summer,” said Michael Blasky, spokesman for AAA in Northern California. “If demand stays strong, the price of fuel is likely to keep rising.”
The state average is $3.10 while the national average is only $2.61, nearly 90 cents cheaper than the Bay Area.
