as far as our area, any chance of showers, we may have it in mendocino county or the sierra, but not the bay area. by tuesday and wednesday, the system could bring rain but it looks to be staying north or east of us and won't bring moisture but you will see temperatures below average for today, and a few degrees below average in oakland. enjoy this while you can, 70s in santa clarita, but cool air will stick around and temperatures will be cooler by the water. 66 in venetia, and in antioch, keep a sweater close by, because highs may reach only 65.

$3.70. according to aaa, gas prices are up about 5 cents from last week, 20 cents in the last month and in california and hawaii, gas prices are about $3.70, 1 dollar higher than the national average and the steady climb is due to, in part, a diminishing supply of crude oil. >> it is now the pain point for many drivers. americans will pay an extra $200 compared to last year but it's not the worst when you look at 2008 with prices over $4. let's hope it doesn't go there. we are hovering just below that price. jessica flores, kpix5.
