Feckless #BigOil uses #HurricaneHarvey as an excuse to spike #California gas prices

With Hurricane Harvey slamming into the Texas Gulf Coast’s oil-refining and transportation hub, this year’s Labor Day weekend rise in the price of gasoline has become anything but typical.

Drivers throughout the Bay Area and across the state should expect prices at the pumps to remain elevated for the next couple of weeks, even though California’s gasoline doesn’t come from Texas.

According to the American Automobile Association, the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gas in California reached $3.04 a gallon Friday.
