Fill 'er Up: Production Squeeze Causes Price Jump

The cheapest gas in Campbell can be found at both Valero for $4.13 a gallon.

You know that moment. You, like many, probably dread that moment. The one when that gas light turns on.

And things aren't looking too good for gas prices in the Bay Area, even as national prices have started to take a dip.

Prices in the region jumped by as much as 16 cents over the course of the week. The increase is the result of several California refiners slowing down production in order to conduct maintenance and repairs, according to a San Jose Mercury News article.

Statewide, the average price per gallon was $4.19 versus the national average of $3.80.

While the rising trend should only be temporary, Campbell Patch tracked down the top five cheapest gas in town to save drivers a few cents a gallon.

While all Campbell prices have skyrocketed to over $4 a gallon, they ranged anywhere from $4.13 at Valero to $4.49 at KWIK SERV.
