SLO County’s gas prices are going up again, where to shop

May 1, 2022


Gas prices in San Luis Obispo County have jumped during the past week as the national average has started to inch back up. The average price for a gallon of regular gasoline in SLO County increased from $5.89 to $5.95, according to figures from AAA.

“Although lower gas demand would typically push pump prices lower, the fluctuating oil price and tight gasoline supply have pushed pump prices higher,” according to AAA. “Pump prices will likely face upward pressure as oil prices remain above $100 per barrel.”

At an average price of $5.95 a gallon, SLO County has the third highest price for gas in the state. Listing the highest average price, Mono County’s price for a gallon of regular gasoline this week is $6.58.

The national average price for a gallon of gas increased six cents during the past week to $4.18.

Gas taxes go up July 1st. You really think Newsome cares…

He does care….about his people

Well after seeing a Prius EV and two Tesla’s being loaded on flatbed tow trucks along Hwy 101 this week, I’ll stick with my 4-cylinder gas powered truck. I’ve had it for almost five years with no issues. I need reliable transportation to make it to work and back.

Dont worry, our elected officials will conduct another investigation into price gouging, that’ll fix the problem.
