Sacramento, CA — Up a lot, then down a little. That´s the trend in gas prices over the last month according to AAA.
The statewide average cost of a gallon of regular unleaded is $2.56. Even though the price of gas in California has dropped a couple cents in the last week, it´s up 20 cents higher than last month.
Drivers are still paying 48 cents more than a year ago. AAA says prices are high because fuel has become unstable due to recent world events from rioting and unrest in the Middle East to Venezuela´s threat to divert their oil exports away from the United States.
