Average gas prices in Los Angeles hit $6 per gallon on Tuesday, making it the first city in the United States to break the milestone.

Gas price recording website GasBuddy announced that Los Angeles hit $6 even as national average prices ticked down slightly from their peak of $4.35 per gallon on March 10, Fox 5 reported.

The price of gas has surged over the past year as the Biden administration has presided over 40-year high inflation. Costs at the pump skyrocketed even further in the wake of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which saw global markets disrupted and many countries boycott Russian gas.

California has the highest gas prices in the country, in large part a result of its stiff gas taxes.

House Republicans representing California have urged Gov. Gavin Newsom (D.) to suspend the state’s gas tax, which is 51 cents per gallon.

As California taxpayers bear the brunt of record gas prices, state lawmakers are considering an emergency cash injection to make up for the financial strain of paying for gas. Taxpayers could receive hundreds of dollars each through gas rebate proposals being debated in the state legislature.
