The average price of a gallon of gas in Los Angeles County has skyrocketed to an all-new high of $6.46.
That’s the latest from AAA, which reports the new per-gallon price tops the previous record, which was set on June 14th.
In the last 31 days, the price of gas in L.A. has increased $1.22 — including a 15.3 cents hike last Thursday.
Experts are blaming the out-of-control increases on maintenance issues in local refineries.
