Refinery outages and a unseasonably warm weather caused gas prices to shoot up by 20 cents a gallon overnight in California, prompting some stations to close and others to charge more than $5 a gallon, the AP reports.

Temperatures are expected to head up to at least 79 degrees in L.A., while production disruptions linger at local Chevron and Mobil refineries, according to USA Today.

GasBuddy is registering an average price of $4.53 this morning for the state, near the record of $4.61 from June 2008.
