Kitsap gas prices escalate as Memorial Day weekend begins


It’s costing $4.23 for a gallon of unleaded gas today, Friday, as the three-day weekend approaches, up from $4.07 a month ago, says AAA.

Today’s price comes closer even yet to the all-time high in Kitsap of $4.37 in June 2008. The switchover to summer blend at West Coast refineries is being blamed, along with the fire at the Cherry Point refinery at Ferndale, in Whatcom County.
