According to AAA, the spike can be attributed to the annual change to the more costly summer-blend gasoline and refinery issues. Six of California’s 10 refineries have seen a reduction in output during maintenance and necessary repairs, AAA said.

There has also been an increase in crude oil costs in the last several months.
