The U.S Average Gasoline Prices Show a Downward Trend Where as California Witnes

Though the national average of gasoline prices fell 2 cents in the last couple of weeks to $2.83 a gallon, the gas price is on the rise in California.

The average price nationwide for midgrade gas gasoline was $3.05 and the premium was being sold at $3.22 says a survey by Lundberg.

The cheapest gas price in the continental U.S was recorded in Jackson, Mississippi at $2.42 per gallon.

If the general trend is a slide in gasoline prices then why is California different than the others? The answer is most probably a deficiency in oil and different components which are used by California's refineries to create the unique blend of gas which is less-polluting; at least that is what Trilby Lundberg had to say on Sunday. Industry experts also say that a hold back in imported crude and shuttering of a refinery in Torrance may have been an added reason for the wholesale price rise. Analysts say that California may experience a higher rise in gasoline prices which might go as high up as $4 for a gallon before they start to come down again.
