Governor Newsom Convenes Special Session to Examine Gas Costs, Pricing and Profit

The Governor has convened a special session of the legislature to examine potential responses targeted at oil companies to what the administration believes are unexplainable gas price increases orchestrated by the industry. 

The Governor’s action came in response after five major oil refiners refused to attend the California Energy Commission’s hearing on gas price hikes amidst record profits on November 29th.

Transportation and energy affordability are key issues for counties and CSAC staff will monitor and provide updates on the special session as they become available.
