You are right,

Probably the high end are in California, where they have to produce a special blend that is found nowhere else, and thus is much more expensive.

Low end is probably in some areas very close to refineries but with a lower cost of living than oil boom areas.

Votes show it’s over $4 a gallon somewhere. I found this https://www.investmentwatchblog.com/gasoline-prices-in-california-approaching-4-per-gallon/

Probably headed for 5 a gallon soon.

In other news, people are packing up and fleeing California - at least those who can afford to, and have opportunities elsewhere. So it is leaving behind the most destitute and more dependent class as the "brain drain" and "wealth drain" picks up steam.

That’s what I’m finding when I search on gas prices.  Does the California blend do anything helpful? If so, why don’t other states adopt it?

It is only helpful to the politicians. And since it has been a one party rule state for the past few decades, it's unlikely to change, and as more people abandon the state, it will just leave behind those who really think somehow their blend is speshul.

Other states haven't adopted it because it is more of a virtue signaling than any real benefit.

They claim it reduces smog and pollution.

look to Texas and to OPEC for this one instead of reflexive venting about blue states you don't like. Greg Abbott & Texas 'I don't want no fed'rul regulation' resulted in the disastrous consequence of the freeze that cut off power and caused water shortages across the states. Abbott tried to deflect to other issues, but he is responsible and did a poor job handling the crisis. The shutdown of power plants affects gas prices throughout the country and even more in states like Minnesota

California also had many regulations against refineries so they can’t produce gasoline in quantities needed which drives prices even higher. They are over $4 a gallon in major cities.
