The average U.S. price of regular-grade gasoline spiked 13 cents over the past two weeks, to $3.44 per gallon.

The price at the pump is $1.22 higher than a year ago.

Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg of the Lundberg Survey announced that the rise comes as the cost of crude oil surges.

The highest average price for regular-grade gas is in the San Francisco Bay Area, at $4.65 per gallon. The lowest average is in Houston, at $2.91 per gallon.

According to the poll, the average price of diesel surged 14 cents to $3.59 a gallon.

In Saint Luis Obispo County, the average gas price is resting at $4.73 a gallon for regular unleaded, that's up from $4.59 only a month ago and over a dollar more than this time last year.

It's a similar picture in Santa Barbara county with regular gas at $4.48 a gallon, 13 cents higher than last month.

Drivers explain they are left with no alternative.

"No, I'm not going to stop driving my car," said Rob Dwyer, a California native. "I don't pay much attention to the gas prices," he stated.

The hike in prices can be attributed to an increase in oil prices and a lack of products.

Prices are at a seven-year high, and specialists predict things will worsen before they get better.

"You don't have a choice. It’s just part of it," announced Marinette Evangelista, another customer at the pump.

If you can see that things are bad locally, the sticker shock from a town not far from here will make your jaw drop.
