NBC Los Angeles: Gas prices in California came to a record high price of $4.614 per gallon on Saturday.
Prices are expected to continue to increase within the next few days, according to the Automobile Club of Southern California. A 47 cent price increase over the past week has been blamed on a refinery shortage and a power outage at a plant in Torrance, Calif.
