SOUTHLAND – (INT) - Southern California motorists are getting slight break after the latest state gas tax hike kicked in.
Pump prices rose 5.6 cents a gallon when the tax was added July 1st. But, the Automobile Club of Southern California says increased production and supplies are now continuing to push prices downward.
