(CTNS) - California gas prices are starting to slip below $4 a gallon, the first time in nearly two months they've been that low. We're now forking over 28 to 30 cents less than we were a year ago. But it's not yet time to celebrate.
"We're not out of the woods yet," said Patrick DeHaan of GasBuddy.com. "Extensive refinery maintenance continues, and should one of them fumble, prices could head the other direction again."
Some experts predict prices nationally will exceed $4 a gallon by Memorial Day, then fall in June. The current average is $3.65 a gallon across the country, compared with $4.05 in California, according to AAA, and $4.03, according to GasBuddy.com.
GasBuddy.com says prices are lower in every major city it tracks -- some 166 across the 50 states.
