In the past week gas prices in Chico have risen 7.1 cents per gallon and 25.1 cents per gallon in the last month. The national average has increased 3.2 cents per gallon in the last week.
Gas in Chico is averaging $3.70 a gallon, higher than the national average of $3.44 a gallon. The national average has increased 17.6 cents per gallon in the last month, but despite the recent rise in prices the national average is 26.7 cent per gallon lower than this day one year ago. Chico prices are 34.1 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago.
“Gasoline prices, as expected, continued their rise over the last week," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Gregg Laskoski. "The pace in the increases slowed somewhat versus the week prior, but motorists shouldn't get excited over the one week slowdown in the rise in prices. We fully expect that as refineries get into the prime of maintenance season, gasoline prices nationwide will continue to rise, and perhaps at the fastest rate we could see in 2014.”
