How bad was California’s record gasoline price spike last month?

So bad that even after falling by 89.9 cents a gallon from the record $4.671 set on Oct. 9, the state’s average is still at a record level one day before the start of the long Thanksgiving weekend.

The average price of a gallon of regular gasoline in California is $3.772, down an additional 6.9 cents a gallon since last week, according to the AAA Fuel Gauge Report.

That’s still higher than the old record for today: $3.764, set last year.

Record prices also remain in Southern California, according to the Automobile Club of Southern California’s Weekend Gas Watch, which was released a day early because of the holiday.
