It's Official--California is # 1! (in gas prices)

Let the drumroll begin . . . California now has the highest gas prices in the nation! 

We even beat out Hawaii, a state that has to ship in their petroleum by boat, by a whopping 12 cents per gallon.  Most of this increase is attributable to California’s gas tax that recently kicked in and increased taxes by 12 cents per gallon. 

 

While California’s gas prices are the highest, it is # 2 in the nation is gas taxes—where Pennsylvania is edging us out by about one cent a gallon.
