Gas prices


Gas prices in San Luis Obispo County and the rest of the country increased this week as the price of crude oil crosses $80 a barrel, according to AAA.

“When the cost of crude oil crosses the $80 a barrel mark, that puts a lot of upward pressure on what we pay at the pump,” said Andrew Gross, AAA spokesperson, “and as long as oil costs remain at the current level, drivers will likely see incremental price increases for now.”

The average price for a gallon of regular gas in SLO County rose three cents during the past week to $5.16.

During the same time period, the average price of gas in California increased three cents to $4.91 a gallon. The national average gas price rose seven cents to $3.67 a gallon.
