The price of regular gasoline has been hovering very close to that dreaded $4 a gallon mark for several days here in B-town. Today, for the first time, I saw stations with posted prices for regular at a little over $4 a gallon. I began reporting on the appearance of $4 a gallon gas in Burbank about two weeks ago.

There are still gas stations in Burbank selling regular a bit cheaper: $3.91, $3.93, and $3.95. I gassed up my ride today for $3.93 gallon. That was bargain when you consider the average price for regular gas today in California is $3.96, according  to the  AAA Daily Fuel Gauge Report

The national average for regular is $3.54 right now. Again, we’re getting slammed by jacked up gas prices here. The state with the dubious honor of  having the highest average price for regular gas? Not the Golden State, but Hawaii, at $4.07 per gallon.
