How Much Will Gas Prices Go Down In California?
FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) —
Gas prices are dropping, but in California we will still be paying more than the majority of the country.
According to Gasbuddy.com we'll be paying about 20 to 30-cents less per gallon by the end of October. People pumping gas Monday say any drop in prices is welcome.
"I commute a lot and I go up the hill to the mountains all the time, so it's really exciting," says Audra Roland of Fresno.
However, even with the drop in prices we'll still be paying more. A local gas station owner says it is because of taxes and regulations. He told KMPH environmental regulations mean refineries have to make a special gas just for us. California also has more gas taxes than other states.
If gas prices do go down the average person will save about $5 every time they put gas.
