Gas Prices Up Again

Monday, October 8, 2012

Even as Gov. Jerry Brown took emergency measures to push down the record cost of gasoline over the weekend, the average high of $4.66 a gallon on Monday means that California surpasses Hawaii as the state with the highest gas prices in the nation, USA Today reports. The Los Angeles Times reports that police are dealing with thieves who steal fuel. The Huffington Post said Sen. Dianne Feinstein has called for a federal investigation into gas prices in the state because she doesn't think they are related to supply and demand.
