There’s good news and bad news at the pumps.

 

Marie Dodds with AAA says while gas prices are generally going down around the nation; here in the northwest we're not so lucky.  "We’ve has some tight supplies to begin with here on the west coast, because of a refinery fire in the San Francisco area in early August.  And now with refineries shutting down temporarily for switch over to take place, it has made our supplies even tighter, and that's to blame for putting upward pressure on prices."

 

Dodds says Bend's average is about $3.97.

 

Refineries are switching from summer blend to the cheaper winter blend; but that takes a few weeks.

 

We should see our averages go down by the first week in November.
