This is just horrible.
If you happen to live in San Francisco, gas prices could reach $5 per gallon sometime this week according to industry experts!
According to Fox Business, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy, Patrick De Haan, claimed that said San Francisco drivers are in a really bad position because of already high gas prices PLUS California is a state with one of the highest gasoline taxes.
He further noted that the “refinery issues that developed early this week due to the deluge of water” are also causing surging prices for the people of San Francisco.
If oil supply and prices “continue to trend in the wrong direction,” drivers could see “closer to an average of $5 per gallon” De Haan warned.
Sadly, some parts of San Francisco are already well into the $5 range:
