Gas Prices: Los Angeles Hits Record $6 Gallon

Gas Prices: Los Angeles Hits Record $6 Gallon

Nationwide, gas prices have continued to plateau after last week's record high.

The average price at the pump on Wednesday was about $4.24 a gallon, according to AAA, where it's hovered since Monday.

But that reprieve isn't being felt in Los Angeles County, where gas is averaging $6.02 a gallon, a record for the nation's most populous county.

Mechanical issues at refineries in California have lowered supply, driving up prices throughout the state.

As demand increases with warm weather, and more regions adopt summertime blends, price hikes are likely to return to regions across the US.
