BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - The average price of gas is listed at $4.43 a gallon on Friday.
This price increased by three cents overnight and by 34 cents from last week.
The drastic spike at the pump is spreading state-wide. Some stations in Southern California are even closing because the price per barrel is too high and other stations are charging nearly six dollars a gallon.
Experts blame the price hike on refinery outages and a pipeline closure in the central valley.
