Seven states now have gas at or above $4 a gallon. Oregon's average of $3.86 a gallon this week, ranks it 14th most expensive in the country. Marie Dodds at Triple A explains why we may be getting a little break from the overwhelming increase:  “This is one of those few times when our geographic isolation, which normally results in high gas prices is actually shielding us a bit from some of the major increases we’re seeing in other states.” She adds that investors are worried that the high prices at the pump are going to make people buy less gas. Consequently, crude oil prices are coming down from a high a few weeks ago. That should help the price at the pump level off a little.
