Our average currently sits closer to $5.25 per gallon, with Camas County being hit the hardest with an average of almost $5.70 a gallon. The state of California is currently averaging roughly $6.42 a gallon, the highest average in the country. Our whole region has been deeply impacted by gas prices.
