California drivers are now paying more money for gasoline than any other state, except for Hawaii and Alaska.

Experts say prices will only continue to rise because of low inventory.

According to GasBuddy.com, the West Coast’s supply has decreased by more than one million barrels since last week. Meanwhile, fuel imports have fallen to zero for the first time since March.

Mac is holding out hope that the price spike won’t last long.

She said, “If all of us are flooding to the gas station of course demand goes up and it could definitely make prices shoot up even more.”
