“The California Energy Commission reported Wednesday that Southern California gasoline supplies are now well below average levels for the past five years, but so far that news has not dramatically affected wholesale prices,” said Jeffrey Spring, the Automobile Club of Southern California’s corporate communications manager.
“Oil Price Information Service analysts say the low supply level is likely due to both planned and unplanned maintenance at local refineries.”
