Californians can be expected to pay an average of $4.655 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline as of today.
That's according to AAA, which released new data Sunday showing California gas prices were the highest they've been in four years. Prices had climbed 4 cents since Saturday, Oct. 6.
In parts of Los Angeles, in the Hollywood and Beverly Hills areas, prices topped $5.25 per gallon.
The national average is around $3.81 a gallon, according to AAA, the highest ever for this time of year. October prices usually dip after the heavy-driving summer season, which may see that number plunge nationwide.
