Get ready to pay even more at the pump – perhaps as much as $5 per gallon or more.

Some consumers are already paying more than that: The average price for a gallon of regular gasoline in San Francisco hit the $5 mark Thursday. That’s the first time a U.S. city has hit an average that high, said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at fuel-savings app GasBuddy.

But the entire state of California will likely hit that mark in the next week or two, and major citiesnationwide will likely follow suit, De Haan told USA TODAY. “Some large cities could hit $5/gal but not yet immediately,” he said.
