California Gas Prices Hit Average of $4, Highest in the State Since 2014 :roll2:
It sounds like it's just a temporary increase spurred on by a couple of temporary factors. Nothing to get all worried about. Not like $5/gallon is likely anytime soon.
On the positive side: one expert predicts that gas prices will spike in the next week before gradually decreasing.

The situation in Venezuela has pushed gas prices up a bit and if things heat up too much down there we could wind up with a big surge. I'm against interfering in the affairs of a foreign country and I'm against an increase in gas prices. Nuff said!

Agree, it seems like Cuba, China, and Russia are trying to bait us to sticking our nose in. It is a Western Hemisphere problem yes, but a South America problem first. Let the those countries try first. More reason for a wall.

From what I hear an embargo deal involving Iran is also a factor that could cause a huge increase in gas prices all of a sudden. Trump will need to be very careful. His re-election depends on his ability to keep the economy under control. Five dollar gas would not help his chances any!
