California gas prices set new record, climb $6 more

After three weeks of steady growth, the average price for a gallon of regular gas in California reached $6 per gallon, a first for the state and the US.

According to AAA, California’s average was $6.06 on Thursday.

Orange and Los Angeles counties each topped $6 at the end of March before prices plummeted. This week, the average price broke a new record on Wednesday and again on Thursday and climbed up to $6.07 and $6.09 respectively.

According to Andrew Gross, AAA’s national public relations manager, the high cost of crude has driven up pump prices. On Wednesday, the price of a barrel of Brent crude fell by $2.82 to $109.11. Brent crude is the global oil benchmark, accounting for about 80% of the world’s crude.

According to data from AAA and the Oil Price Information Service, the average price for regular gas is 32.3 cents in LA and 36.5 cents in Orange County.
