CHICO, Calif. - The national average gas prices dropped for the first time since the Colonial Pipeline shutdown, according to AAA’s gas report.

The national average dropped a penny to $3.03 but is still 17 cents more expensive than last month and $1.12 higher than last year.

“With the increase in travel demand, gas prices are going to be expensive no matter where you fill up, so plan ahead,” said Jeanette McGee, AAA spokesperson.

California’s average gas price is currently $4.161, up from $4.132 last week. Last year at this time, California’s average price was $2,861.

Chico’s current average price is $4.025 while Redding’s current average price is $4.112.

The weather will be pulling a 180 as we head into the evening hours and kick off our work week. A north wind will be taking hold, bringing gusty conditions and increased fire danger to the valley, foothills, and the Sierra Mountains. Gusts between 25-35mph are possible from late this evening through Monday night for the valley while the foothills and the Sierra will continue to see the windy conditions through Tuesday morning. This has prompted a Red Flag Warning for the Valley 11pm tonight through 8pm Monday while the Sierra and Foothills will last through Tuesday morning.
