California drivers are likely feeling the pain at the pump.

According to GasBuddy, average gasoline prices across our state are now at their highest level since 2014.

As of Wednesday, the average statewide price was $3.895 per gallon, which beat 2015’s peak of $3.894 per gallon.

GasBuddy says prices will likely hit $4 per gallon in the coming days, which would be the highest since July 27, 2014.

Experts say gas prices are soaring across California because of issues at refineries in California, which has led to lower fuel inventories.

According to GasBuddy, there are already several locations on the Central Coast that have hit the $4 mark.

GasBuddy says the highest price in San Luis Obispo is $4.19 per gallon at several Chevron locations.

The Shell on E Main Street in Santa Maria is currently listed at $4.25 per gallon.

Prices at the Chevron on Five Cities Drive in Pismo Beach are even higher, at $4.39 per gallon.
