Gas prices surge another 9¢ in four days.

Local gas prices surged 9¢ at the retail level today, reaching an average price of $4.09 a gallon in San Diego County.

Prices have increased 27¢ in the last 7 days, and almost 40¢ in the last two weeks, representing an 11% increase in less than 14 days.

Given the velocity of the current price trajectory, and the fact that it is occurring this early in the year, suggests that 2013 will probably be the most expensive year for gasoline in the history of the state of California.
