Drivers in California can expect to pay $8 per gallon for gas in many areas, according to an expert who says that the current spike in prices is unlikely to ease in the near future.

SFGate.com reported Tuesday:

California’s average price rose above $5 a gallon for the first time ever, hitting $5.44 on Tuesday. News of shockingly high prices across the Golden State is spreading. The Chevron in the town of Mendocino was selling regular gas at $8.45 a gallon on Tuesday.

Is there an end in sight to the high gas prices?

That’s the million-dollar question, said Patrick de Haan, head of petroleum analysis at Gas Buddy.



De Haan told SFGATE that he doesn’t see a drop coming yet, if at all, noting that California’s average could near $6 — and an increasing number of stations in the Golden State may charge over $8 a gallon.

Gas price in California is higher and could get even higher.

No state is immune from gasoline taxation, but it's not hard to see that Commiefornia is No. 1:

Tonight at the Rotten Robbie, one of the more inexpensive gas stations here in San Jose, I filled up my work truck for $5.49 a gallon of regular. There are a couple of independent stations that usually had the cheapest gas in the area. I drove by them today. They were still the cheapest in the area but not by much at $5.10 a gallon for regular.
