The top 25 cities with most expensive gas

Monday, gas in York average $3.798, according to gas price tracking website, Gasbuddy.com.

That’s pretty expensive, considering just one year ago, it averaged 3.356.

But there is a tiny glimmer of sunshine for York County residents – we are still at least 20 cents a gallon cheaper than the cities that made ABCNews and GasBuddy’s list of the 25 most expensive cities for gas.

Here’s their list:

  1.    Santa Barbara CA – $4.350
  2.    San Francisco CA – $4.346
  3.    Los Angeles CA – $4.330
  4.    San Diego CA – $4.315
  5.    Ventura CA – $4.314
  6.   Orange County CA – $4.312
  7.   Riverside CA – $4.293
  8.   San Jose CA – $4.284
  9.   San Bernardino CA – $4.279
  10.   Oakland CA – $4.276

  12.   Salinas CA – $4.265
  13.   Fresno CA – $4.205
  14.   Stockton CA – $4.201
  15.   Sacramento CA – $4.200
  16.   Honolulu HI – $4.197

  23.   Seattle WA – $3.962
  24.   Eugene OR – $3.961
  25.   Bridgeport CT – $3.958

Interestingly, their top 18 are pretty much all California cities, with Honolulu thrown in, despite concerns that the closure of East Coast refineries could send this area’s gas prices soaring.

    I posted this to my Facebook page and a couple folks from California commented that they are used to the higher prices. One friend wrote: “Thank God for my Honda Civic”
