Unrest in the Middle East likely means higher gas prices here at home.
Increasing violence in Iraq pushed the price of oil to more than $107 Monday. That's the highest it's been in nine months.
Analysts expect prices at the pump to jump as much as ten cents a gallon; that in turn could affect sales of pickup trucks and SUVs.
AAA reports the national average is $3.66. In California gas is a bit more expensive at $4.08.
In San Luis Obispo County drivers are paying $4.19. In Santa Barbara County it's $4.13.
