Gas prices today, September 24 in California by county: What is the average price near me?

Gas prices have risen sharply across the United States since July. However, they are still below the highs of a year ago, when the average national price broke the $5 mark. The recent increase is mainly due to reduced production by the oil cartel group OPEC.

California is by far the most expensive state for gas. Since the beginning of the year, the average price of a gallon of gasoline has risen steadily, but in the last month it has increased by more than 50 cents. After a bit of a reprieve at the end of this week, prices are rising again and the national average per gallon is $5.82, according to AAA. That’s almost $2 more than the national average of $3.85.

Why are gas prices in California the highest in the US?

California imposes some of the highest state taxes on gasoline in the country. These taxes include both a state excise tax and a sales tax, which can significantly increase the price of gasoline at the pump.

Furthermore, prices across the country are rising due to the rapidly rising price of crude oil.

Experts like Severin Borenstein, a professor at UC Berkeley, argue that oil companies can benefit at least in part from “a less competitive gasoline market than the rest of the country” “because we use this cleaner-burning gasoline formulation that we don’t with the rest.” of the country, in part because two refineries in California control about half of the entire gasoline market.”

These two refineries are Marathon Petroleum Corp and Chevron USA, which together can refine more than 875,000 barrels of oil per day.
