Similar action last year resulted in massive price cuts.
SACRAMENTO – Today, Assembly Republican Leader James Gallagher (Yuba City) called on Gov. Gavin Newsom to bring down gas prices by immediately switching the state over to its cheaper “winter blend” of fuel. Despite a new law that Newsom promised would bring down fuel costs by stopping “price gouging,” California gas prices have soared and are projected to jump even higher in the coming days.
“California drivers are needlessly suffering with the highest gas prices in the nation – they need relief and they need it now,” said Gallagher. “Gavin Newsom should be pulling out all the stops to bring costs down and make Californians’ daily lives more affordable.”
Following similar action by Newsom last year, wholesale gas prices dropped by more than $1.25/gallon within 48 hours.
