Refinery Problems Drive Up Gas Prices

Disruptions at oil refineries in the San Francisco Bay area have pushed up wholesale gasoline prices by ten cents per gallon.

Technical problems over the past two weeks at refineries of three oil companies caused a 6-8% decline in statewide gas production.

A state official says the refiners are drawing on reserves and obtaining gas from out of state.
