SAN DIEGO (CUSI) – The average price of a gallon of regular self-service gasoline in San Diego County rose to a record on Thursday, rising by six-tenths of a cent to $ 6,023, breaking the previous record of $ 6,018 set on March 29.
Also, the statewide average price per gallon is over $ 6.
MP Kevin Keeley introduced a bill to suspend the nationwide gas tax amid record high prices, but Democrats in the State Assembly beat him every time.
Keeley still sees no support from Democrats for his legislation to suspend the nationwide gas tax.
We cost $ 6.05 a gallon, and the national average is “only” $ 4.56. In many ways, California is a preview of what America expects if we don’t change course.

Democrat lawmakers wrote on Twitter “Suspend # Gas tax NOW ». They went from repeatedly voting against my bill to all the headlines and hashtags.

$ 6 a gallon is now averaging across the state. It’s time for a new vote on the gas tax suspension.
