It may not seem like it – but gasoline prices are on the way down across Northern California. The American Automobile Association of Northern California says prices are still above two dollars a gallon in most places, but they are dropping. AAA spokeswoman Jenny Mack says prices peaked in the area about a month ago and have been creeping down since.
The association says San Francisco residents are paying the highest prices in the country – an average of $2.24. San Francisco Bay area motorists are paying an average of $2.14. The statewide average is $2.12. The AAA survey says California and Hawaii are the only states paying an average of over $2 for gas.
Mack says prices are likely to continue going down in the short term, but the forecast for summer prices is uncertain.
