Report: California gas rebate checks delayed
Gov. Gavin Newsom must still determine who is eligible to receive California gas rebate checks -- up to $400 per vehicle.

It could take several more months for Californians to see gas rebate checks.

Gov. Gavin Newsom expects the process to take until October, according to a new report from the Bay Area News Group.

Newsom and Democrats in the legislature must still determine if everyone will be eligible for the money or just people in certain income levels.

Those eligible will receive up to $400 per vehicle to offset the high price of gas.
