Santa Cruz County should see relief at the gas pump after September’s gas prices were, nationally, the highest of the summer, according to a Marketwatch story on Monday.
Gas prices in the Santa Cruz-Watsonville area on Wednesday were an average of $4.128 for regular unleaded fuel, according to AAA’s Fuel Gauge Report. That's far from our local high of $4.68 per gallon, set in June 2008, according to AAA. It's down oh-so-slightly from one week ago, when it was $4.136, and a month ago, when it was $4.137.
The price fall has been blamed on a combination of Middle East oil politics, a seasonal drop in demand and a variety of other factors.
