After four days of hikes - as much as 50 cents per day - the price of gas in California finally has started to fall.
The AAA Daily Fuel Gauge Report says the average price of regular Wednesday is less than $4.67 a gallon, down a half-cent from Tuesday, the Associated Press reports. It’s still the highest price in the nation, however.
The top average price in the state is $4.75 a gallon in the San Luis Obispo area.
Around the Northern San Joaquin Valley, gas can be found for $4.29 a gallon at American Gas on Fairview Drive in Ceres and the Modesto Truck Plaza on South Seventh Street in Modesto.
Never miss a local story.
State officials predicted prices would fall after Gov. Jerry Brown ordered early production of a winter fuel blend to replace costlier summer blends.
