Gas prices soar above $4, respite not due until September
Southland gas prices have risen dramatically over the past week, and one industry expert figures they’ll remain above $4 a gallon until September.
The average price for a gallon of regular gas in Los Angeles County hit $4.30 Friday, up 12 cents from a week ago and 26 cents from a month ago, according to AAA’s Daily Fuel Gauge Report.
And, as usual, no one is happy about the spike in gas prices.
“It’s definitely a hard thing for us, especially with deliveries,” said Chelsea Gaudenti, operating manager of Rolling Hills Flower Mart in Redondo Beach. “We can’t increase our delivery fees just because gas prices go up. ... When we get flowers shipped from one place to another, it’s a challenge, too, because our cost goes up with that. So that’s another struggle.”
