Sacramento-area gas prices rise another 6.5 cents

Sacramento-area gasoline prices rose another 6.5 cents over the past week, according to national fuel cost tracker

The area’s current average retail cost of gas is $2.67 a gallon, up 17.5 cents from last month.

GasBuddy said the national average at-the-pump cost is $2.37 a gallon, up 16.2 cents in a month’s time.

GasBuddy said prices might actually stabilize this week as brutal winter weather from coast to coast cuts into normal transportation patterns.
