Gas prices have been increasing over the last week leaving the current price for a gallon of regular at $1.781, six cents more than seven days ago. Not to fear, though; that's still 33 cents lower than last month and $1.44 under last year. “The increases have pulled California up once again to have one of the most expensive statewide gas price averages in the U.S., behind only Alaska, Hawaii and New York,” explained Auto Club spokesperson Jeffrey Spring in a statement on Friday.
