In the past week,average retail gasoline prices in Sacramento rose 1.1 cents per gallon. The average price in Sacramento yesterday averaged $3.09 per gallon. Compare this with the national average that fell 5.9 cents per gallon over the same period, to $2.72 per gallon, according to gasoline price website SactoGasPrices.com.

Including the change in gas prices in Sacramento during the past week, prices yesterday were 23.9 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 11.2 cents per gallon higher than a month ago.

The national average only moved 0.1 cents per gallon during the last month, 13.9 cents per gallon higher than this day a year ago.

  1. Gas prices would steadily go up and the supply dwindle and the Saudis like to increase their profit margin.

  2. I think we all noticed that the gas price went up. Instead of telling me the obvious, it’d be a better article to explain why Sacramento gas price went up while the nation’s average went down.

  3. Gas prices are killing me, i really want to see them decrease as the economy shows improvement. But it doesn’t seem that the politicians want them to go down. The democrats and the republicans and Obama are all in the same club, I think.

  4. You can expect gas prices to rise every spring. It seems to get earlier and earlier each year. That’s because oil futures traders know demand for gas rises in the summer. They therefore start buying oil futures contracts in the spring in anticipation of that price rise.:

  5. Gas prices going down, definitely a good thing, especially when it is costing over $100 to fill the big tank now. I really don’t want to downsize the car yet. My guess is that within the next 10 years, prices will double again. Not looking forward to that!
