Californians could see relief at the pump in the coming weeks, as gasoline prices have begun to drop slightly after reaching record highs last week. According to Patrick De Haan, head of Petroleum Analysis at Gas Buddy, high gas taxes and limited supply from oil refineries are among the reasons for the rising gas prices in California. “Once these refinery issues are addressed within the next couple of weeks, I expect California prices to go back under $6,” De Haan said.
