The average price per gallon of regular in California climbed to a record $5.72 Friday — jumping up from $5.07 just a week ago, according to AAA.

In the Los Angeles- Long Beach area, gas prices reached a record $5.80 per gallon. Some area gas stations are even charging over $7 for a gallon of gas.
