SAN FRANCISCO - California has set a state record for gasoline prices - but the hikes may be slowing.

The AAA Daily Fuel Gauge Report for Tuesday says the average price of regular jumped only a fraction of a cent overnight - compared to nearly 50 cents in the past week.

It's now a bit over $4.67 a gallon.

That's still the highest price in the nation and an all-time high for the Golden State.

The highest average price in the state, at $4.75, is in the San Luis Obispo, Atascadero and Paso Robles area.

San Diego is $4.72 a gallon and the Los Angeles area about $4.71.
