No mistake -- California gas more expensive than ever
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- One woman says she "thought it was a mistake on the sign" when she pulled into a Los Angeles gas station and found gas selling for $4.65 a gallon. Nancy Garcia says she couldn't afford to fill her tank all the way.
Across California, gasoline prices have reached a new all-time high for the state.
Gas prices are up another four cents a gallon since yesterday -- giving California the most expensive gas in the country at $4.65 and a half a gallon. In some locations, motorists are paying $5 or more.
One analyst says some relief is in sight, but not for a couple of days. Patrick DeHaan of GasBuddy.com says until then, the average price could peak as high as $4.85.
According to analysts, a series of refinery and transmission problems is to blame for the price spike. And they say the situation is compounded by a California pollution law that requires a special blend of cleaner-burning gasoline from April to October.

KINGFISHER, Okla. (AP) -- Authorities continue to search for a Kingfisher teenager who disappeared after jumping into Uncle John Creek.
Police say 17-year-old Taylor Faine jumped into the creek Thursday and did not resurface. Kingfisher Fire Chief Randy Poindexter told The Oklahoman (http://bit.ly/10s2oB6 ) on Saturday that manmade dams have been built in hopes of finding Faine's body.
Authorities say Faine was swimming with friends in an area where no swimming signs are in place because of dangerous currents in the creek.
