FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- The cost for a gallon of regular gas spiked overnight. Prices have risen an average of 15 cents across the states.
Here in Central California, most places have seen the price jump around $6 per gallon.
Fresno, for example, is currently averaging $5.95 per gallon. That's up 11 cents in one day from yesterday's average of $5.84. Compared to one week ago, prices are up a whopping 58 cents from $5.37.
Refinery maintenance along the West Coast is being blamed for the recent spike.
Prices have not yet reached the record state average that happened this past June when the average price then was $6.43 for regular-grade gasoline.
Experts are saying that we could soon break that past record.
