“With the national average price of gas slipping below $2 on Saturday, the holiday season continues to reward most consumers at the pump, but the Grinch turned up in California replacing price declines with price spikes,” said Gregg Laskoski, a senior petroleum analyst with GasBuddy. “California’s hikes tie directly to issues at two refineries with combined capacity exceeding 400,000 barrels per day. Consequently, California’s average price has climbed by 8 cents per gallon while the rest of the country for the most part sees declines,” Laskoski said.
