The rising price of gas is nothing new, but these past seven days, a gallon of gas has jumped up 27 cents. Prices have not increased at this pace since August 2003.

One year ago, gas prices were about one dollar less than today's Los Angeles average of $4.38 per gallon of regular.

"The Auto Club says California refineries are producing more diesel fuel and less gasoline, creating a need to import more costly unleaded fuel from out of state and overseas," reported ABC7.
