Oregon Gas Prices Among Highest In The USA

By Jim McCoy Tue 19th August NewsAAAgas pricesOregon
Oregon drivers are paying the third highest price for gasoline in the country, while drivers in many other states are seeing pump prices drop. An update from AAA Oregon/Idaho says that for the week, the national average for regular unleaded falls three cents to $3.45 while Oregon’s average edges down a penny to $3.90 per gallon. Only Hawaii and Alaska are more expensive, making Oregon’s prices the most expensive in the continental U.S. AAA Oregon/ Idaho Government Affairs Director Marie Dodds says drivers in the Pacific states continue to pay the highest prices in the country per gallon for regular unleaded because this region is geographically isolated in terms of being supplied by refineries that have access to cheaper crude products that are available in the central U.S.
