Gas Prices Soar In Orange County

Texaco Gas Station

You might have noticed its getting much more expensive to fill up your car or truck as the price of gasoline has risen all across Orange County. The prices now are the highest they have been since October of 2012 with the price of gas per gallon having increased with the price $1.18 more than a year ago; Most of that increase approximately $1.15 per gallon has been since the start of the year.

The increase in the price is not really a surprise as demand is sharply up over last year when much of the economy was on lock down. Prices are likely to stay higher as demand is strong, but we will have to see if the COVID Delta Variant increase in cases slows demand.
