CALIFORNIA - California is already leading the nation with high gas prices and they are set to rise beginning July 1.
The state gas tax goes up another 5.6¢ a gallon which is the latest increase from the 2017 law designed to raise about $5 billion a year for road repairs and transportation programs.
California drivers paid an average of $3.75 per gallon in June which is higher than the national average of $2.71 calculated by AAA.
