BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Tensions in Iraq and a new emissions law in California could continue to increase prices at the pump.
The average price per gallon in Bakersfield was $4.05, this week, but the bang to your wallet could soon be getting worse.
"24 percent poverty levels, double digits unemployment throughout the San Joaquin valley..this is not the time to raise gas price at such extreme levels in California," Assemblymember Kristin Olsen said.
AB 32, also known as Cap and Trade, allows the state to charge companies who pollute the air including the oil producers in Kern County.
"It's a hidden gas tax because its directly attributable to this new regulation," said Olsen.
