Due to a sharp increase in oil prices and the increase of more people driving to work, prices at the pump are unfortunately going up. In Southern California, gas prices are at their highest levels in nearly 10 years.
The average price of gasoline in Los Angeles County has increased 20% in only 22 days. This is an 8.4 cent increase to when gas was at its highest on October 25, 2012, according to the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.
In Los Angeles County, the average price for a gallon of gas is approximately $4.33, $4.27 in San Bernardino County, $4.29 in Orange County, and $4.28 in Ventura County.
The national average for gasoline is $3.13 and does not seem to be going down anytime soon.
