SLO County gas prices skyrocketing, find the lowest prices

September 27, 2022


Gas Prices throughout the United States are now soaring, primarily spurred by refinery issues. During the past week, the average price of gas in San Luis Obispo County increased 26 cents to $5.97 a gallon, according to figures from AAA.

“The main reason is higher regional prices on the West Coast and the Midwest due to refinery issues ranging from planned maintenance to a fire,” according to AAA.

The average price of gas in California rose 34 cents during the past week to $5.78 a gallon. Phillips 66 recently announced the closure of two crude oil refineries in California, as the state pushes for alternative energy sources.

For the first time since June, gas price began to rise throughout the United States. The national average price for a gallon of gas increased five cents to $3.72.

SLO County currently has the twelfth 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 $6.74.

The refineries deferred maintenance and upkeep during covid because the price was so low, they weren’t making much, then the price went up they made so much they would not shut down for repairs. now it’s critical and the consumers will pay for it all, just like PG&E we get screwed.

Monday in Los Osos it was $5.59, today it was $6.59…

$6.79 Thursday morning…

“Skyrocketing”? Theses prices are almost the same as last week. But OK!

If you’re going to Costco, it’s $5.64

Was at chevron yesterday and attendant was talking about the big hike in gas prices that morning. I asked if they got a fuel truck in and he said no. Raised prices without getting a fuel delivery.
