Gas prices are still rising in California.
According to Triple A's fuel gauge report, the statewide average in California Tuesday is $4.67 a gallon, an increase of a fraction of a penny overnight. That's still the highest price in the nation and an all-time high for the Golden State.
In Chico the average price rose two cents overnight to $4.53 a gallon. In Redding the average went up three cents a gallon to $4.61.
The highest average price in the state, at $4.75, is in the San Luis Obispo, Atascadero and Paso Robles area.
San Diego is $4.72 a gallon and the Los Angeles area about $4.71.
Officials say they expect prices to fall after the governor ordered the release of a dirtier blend of gasoline to help slash record-high pump prices. But they say it could take a few days depending on how quickly refineries can get the so-called "winter-blend" fuel to market.
California usually converts to the gas on Oct. 31. The fuel evaporates in heat more quickly than summer-blends.
A fuel's evaporation rate indicates how much raw fuel enters the environment, especially in warm weather.
