Our Northwest

Brace yourself for rising gas prices

Friday, August 17, 2012by  Jon Osterberg

Experts say that following the recent California refinery fire, Northwest residents can expect to pay well above $4 per gallon for regular-grade gasoline. That’s not good news for Washington and Oregon motorists in particular, since our corner of the country typically pays more for gasoline than the average American. AAA’s Fuel Gauge Report shows the Northwest currently pays about 20¢ more per gallon than the rest of the country, a trend that’s remained fairly constant over recent years. Check out AAA’s Fuel Gauge Report for Washington and for Oregon, which is updated daily and lists gas prices for the largest cities.
