Abstract: We study the interior regularity properties of the solutions to the degenerate parabolic equation,

\begin{displaymath}\Delta_{x}u+b\partial_{y}u-\partial_{t}u=f, \qquad (x,y,t)\in \mathbb{R} ^{N}\times \mathbb{R}\times\mathbb{R} ,\end{displaymath}

which arises in mathematical finance and in the theory of diffusion processes.
