What will you do about gas prices?
At 11 a.m. Friday, gas prices reached a high of $4.73 in Milpitas at the Chevron Station at 1249 Great Mall Dr & Great Mall Parkway, with a median cost of $4.59, according to Gasbuddy.com.
Across California, residents awoke to find that gas prices had increased significantly overnight even by as much as 20 cents in Ventura. The price in Milpitas is higher than the Bay Area average of $4.52, according to AAA.
The sharp rise has been attributed to decrease supply coming out of California's refineries, including the Chevron refinery in Richmond.
