Monday is also one of three days- alongside Sunday and Tuesday – when wait times at the pumps are shortest according to GasBuddy

He also tweeted another sobering reminder for drivers: "You're going to hate me for this #California, but if it wasn't bad enough, your state gas tax will rise 5.6 cents per gallon in less than 90 days".

"California will soon be home to something not seen in almost five years: a statewide average of over $4 per gallon, with some of the largest cities there swelling to averages as high as $4.15 per gallon before any relief arrives".

GasBuddy analyzed gas price data from January to March for 2019 and found that the first day of the work week offers the lowest average gas price in 30 states, making it the best day to fill up.

In the San Luis Obispo area, the average price was $3.86 a gallon on Sunday, the most recent day for which data is available, according to GasBuddy analyst Patrick DeHaan.

Prices are up by about 28 cents in both the entire US and MI on average during the past month.

Refinery maintenance is slowing down production, it said.

And in California alone, the statewide average is $3.83 a gallon.

The entire Central Coast showed gas prices higher than $3.40 on Monday afternoon, according to GasBuddy's pricing heat map.

"For now, based on where we stand today, prices may continue to increase for one to two more weeks, as long as there is no new issue that arises ... prices may eventually come back down starting in maybe two to three weeks, maybe longer", DeHaan told KIRO Radio.

DeHaan forecasts the average price in California will hit $4 for a gallon of regular gasoline by the end of this week - something no state has experienced in almost the past five years. Fuel prices are up 50 cents since the beginning of the year, and spike even higher during peak travel times, such as Memorial Day and summer vacations.
