    Calif. gas prices equal all-time high | US National Headlines | Comcast

    The price of gasoline equaled the all-time average high in California of $4.61 a gallon Saturday, fueled by a reduced supply and a volatile market.

    Prices throughout the state were expected to increase for several more days before leveling off, after a temporary reduction in supply triggered a price spike that saw fuming motorists paying $5 or more per gallon in some locations and station owners shutting down pumps in others.

    AAA's Daily Fuel Gauge report released Saturday said the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded across California rose 12 cents from its Friday mark of about $4.49.

    Saturday's price, the highest in the nation, equaled the record average high for California set in June 2008 of $4.61.

    Actually, this is because of refinerys shutting down for whatever reason (maintenance, getting old, blowing up, etc.).

    Currently, the gas prices in Amarillo TX (as of 24 Jan 2013) are mostly under 3.00/gal

    Crude is down a bit, but gasoline stocks are tightening up
