Gas prices rising in Vallejo, elsewhere

Drivers in Vallejo and throughout California are paying about 3 cents more at the pump this month as gas stations across the USA continue to see a late-summer spike in prices, AAA reported Wednesday.

The average price for a gallon of unleaded gasoline jumped 3 cents over the same time last month in the Fairfield-Vallejo survey area, reaching $2.94 per gallon, the AAA Fuel Prices Survey states. A month ago, they paid $2.93 statewide ($2.91 in Vallejo), according to AAA. says the average price is $2.35 per gallon.

In Chicago, motorists are paying $2.54 per gallon, while gas costs $2.28 per gallon in nearby South Bend.

Travel demand is the primary reason given for the increase, AAA reports, although the price for a barrel of crude remains less than $50. West Coast refineries are ramping up production in anticipation of the August 21 eclipse, which will draw more than a million sky watchers to Oregon, Idaho and Wyoming.

"While we're likely to see gas prices continuing to move higher in the week ahead as they catch up to oil, we're unlikely to break out of the well-established rut in the national average which has kept prices between $2.12 and $2.42 for the last 15 months".

Despite tying MS for the lowest gas prices in the country at an average price of $2.09, SC also saw the largest weekly increase in gas prices at seven cents.

The Santa Cruz figure is down 1 cent from July.
