Drivers in California may soon start feeling pinched at the pump, as the price of a gallon of gasoline was expected to climb to $4 a gallon in the coming weeks.
Prices could increase by 50-cents a gallon over the next few weeks, according to energy experts.
An increase in gas prices generally happens each year in California when the state switches from the cheaper winter-blend gasoline to the more expensive summer blend. The spike usually occurs in mid-March.
The average cost of a gallon of gas in the state is currently around $3.65, well above the national average.
