Sen. Dianne Feinstein asks the FTC to investigate a 30-cent rise in California gasoline prices since the start of the month, saying prices rose after the fire at Chevron's refinery in Richmond, Calif., even though the incident has not led to a shortage in supply that could justify the price increase. Gasoline prices have increased across the U.S., but Feinstein says they've risen faster in California.
