Oregon gas prices remain high

 Posted: 3:35 PM July 08, 2014

The average gallon of regular gas still cost more than $4 in Medford and Ashland this week, according to data compiled by AAA Oregon/Idaho.

Even as crude oil and wholesale gas prices slowly recede, states touching the Pacific Ocean have the highest prices.

Hawaii ($4.33), Alaska ($4.22), California ($4.14), Washington ($4.01), and Oregon ($3.98) have highest average prices.

The average per gallon of regular this week in Medford and Ashland is $4.004. Last week it sold for $4.021. A year ago, however, it was $3.732.

AAA expects prices to generally drift lower for the rest of the summer, barring major storms, unplanned refinery outages or political unrest.
