MILLBRAE, Calif. (KRON) – Gas prices nationwide have been slashed, dropping 26 cents in the last month. But in the Bay Area, prices have continued to climb.

Take a look at how much our average gas prices have skyrocketed in the last week: in San Francisco gas costs 20 cents more than last week, 32 more cents in San Rafael, 19 more cents in Santa Rosa and Oakland, and 21 more cents on average in San Jose.
