Average retail gasoline prices in California rose a penny to just under $4.67 a gallon on Monday, according to the Daily Fuel Gauge Report from the AAA. It's the third consecutive day of record gasoline prices on tight supply. In a move to ease prices, Gov. Jerry Brown on Sunday ordered regulators to allow winter-blend gasoline to be sold in the state earlier than usual. It's typically not sold until after Oct. 31.
