California Gas Prices Spike

REDDING, Calif. — California residents are watching the gas pumps very closely this Friday.

Prices in the state sky rocketed Thursday morning due to a cut back in supply because of problems at California refineries.

In Redding, overnight prices have risen by 14 cents,  in Chico by 12 cents, and the California state average has gone up 17 cents overnight.

So far, the issues in California have not affected the Medford-Ashland area where prices remain unchanged from Thursday.
