The summer blend is to be in gas stations by April 1. Gas prices are expected to increase by 30 cents a gallon by the weekend, consumer advocates and an industry expert have advised.

Wholesale prices jumped 51 to 52 cents a gallon this week due to the summer-blend issue and Consumer Watchdog, a consumer advocacy organization, scheduled a news conference at its Santa Monica headquarters this morning warning motorists of the impending price spike.

“Consumer advocates will advise California drivers to take advantage of today’s gasoline prices because they will be gone by Friday and keep climbing for the foreseeable future,” according to a Consumer Watchdog statement released prior to the news conference.
