EUREKA- Gas prices on the North Coast surged Thursday morning with some stations raising prices 30 cents per gallon.
Representatives with Gas Buddy say the rise at the pumps is thanks to a perfect storm. Refineries are switching over to a summer blend that is more expensive to make. Meanwhile, refineries in the San Francisco area have been experiencing maintenance issues and labor strikes.
While there are still a few locations where you can fill up for under three dollars, most have surged above. The highest gas price in eureka on Thursday was $3.39 per gallon. Gas buddy says they anticipate the prices to continue rising over the next two to three weeks.
