Sacramento-area gas prices climbing the ladder

Sacramento-area gas prices, which energy analysts had hoped to see declining with the approach of the Independence Day weekend, are not cooperating. Price tracker GasBuddy.com, which surveys more than 700 regional gas outlets daily, said the average retail price of gas in the area rose nearly 4 cents over the past week to $4.01 a gallon. The current average is a whopping 19.5 cents higher than a year ago and nearly a penny higher than last month.
