Conejo Valley Gas Price Survey: From $5.49 to $6.99

The average price of unleaded fuel in the Conejo Valley at press time was $5.69, a modest 69-cent decrease from the Guardian’s June survey. Currently, the lowest priced fuel is found at Sam’s Fuel, 3050 E. Thousand Oaks Blvd., north off the Hampshire exit. A gallon of regular gas costs $5.49; midgrade, $5.79; and premium, $5.89.

The highest priced regular gas is found off the south side of the Hampshire exit at the Chevron, 225 Hampshire Rd. Regular costs $6.59; midgrade, $6.09; and premium, $6.29. The highest premium gas ($6.99) is at the Chevron on 2870 Camino Dos Rios.

Diesel prices ran from a low of $6.29 at Sam’s Fuel, 3050 E. Thousand Oaks Blvd., to $6.98 at the Chevron on 2870 Camino Dos Rios. The state average for diesel is $6.60, down from $6.99 in June, but still up $2.34 from a year ago and an increase of $3.27 since July 2020.

Despite the record-high gas prices, California legislators rejected a proposal by Assemblyman Kevin Kiley (R-6) in March to suspend the annual gas tax increase scheduled for July 1 by six months. Another bipartisan proposal that failed in April called for a one-year suspension of the tax. Legislators opted to dip into the state’s budget surplus to replace the tax revenue.

Drivers can reference online sites like GasBuddy.com or Gasprices.AAA.com, where users update prices regularly. According to AAA, the national average price is currently $4.41, down from $4.94 in June. California tops all states with a current average price of $5.79, down from $6.36 in June, but still an increase of $1.47 from a year ago and up $2.64 from July 2020.
