Gas Prices Surging in Bay Area

As expensive as Bay prices are, they still represent less of an increase than the state as a whole.

By Bay City News Service:

Bay Area gas prices are on the upswing, according to the latest AAA data.

In Oakland, the price for a gallon of regular unleaded was $3.93, up 16 cents from one month ago, the American Automobile Association said Wednesday.

In San Jose, the price for that same gallon is $3.96, an increase of 17 cents over last month.

And San Francisco had some of the most expensive gas on Wednesday at $4.03, which is an 18-cent increase from last month.

As expensive as these prices are, they still represent less of an increase than the state as a whole. Statewide, the average cost of a gallon is $3.98, which is up 19 cents from last month.

The national average right now is $3.54, which is only 12 cents more than the cost for a gallon last month.

I can't relate this article to others I have been reading. The other articles I am talking about are saying how the US is becoming less energy dependent on foreign oil. If that is the case and the US is extracting so much energy from it's own territory, why then the spike in gas prices?

Because you will continue to pay for it
