Ore. gasoline price up 8 cents a gallon



PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — AAA Oregon reports that gasoline prices in Oregon have risen eight cents a gallon, pushed upward by storms that closed refineries along the East Coast and the Gulf of Mexico.

The organization says its surveys showed the national average price up a nickel, to $3.66. Oregon’s average price was pegged at $3.83. AAA Oregon says prices are about 85 cents a gallon higher than at the same time last year.
