SLO County gas prices down slightly, find the lowest prices

October 9, 2022


While gas prices are rising nationally, the average price of gas in California and San Luis Obispo County have declined slightly. At $6.54 a gallon, the average price of gas in SLO County is two cents less than last week’s prices.

The average price of gas in California fell three cents during the past week to $6.34 a gallon.

Prices at the pump in California have increased because of ongoing maintenance at roughly six refineries, which has severely limiting the state’s supply, according to AAA. However, “refinery restarts and California officials allowing less expensive winter-blend gasoline to be sold a month ahead of schedule” has resulted in a small drop in price.

SLO County currently has the seventh 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 $7.31.

The national average gas price increased 12 cents to $3.91 a gallon during the past week.

Gas prices won’t be down until they drop below what they were 2.5 years ago… having them ease from their high is not down… its lower than last week at best so don’t say they are down until they are….
