Retail gas prices were higher a month ago, at $3.63 per gallon but they had fallen and were at $3.47 per gallon last week, according to AAA.
"Short-term, we're going to see the average go into the $3.60, $3.70 range," Kloza said. "You're looking at some markets that were closer to $3 a gallon, like the upper Great Lakes, and they're going to go back up and be closer to $4. Probably every market in the country has gone up at least 30 cents in the wholesale market since June 28."
Gasoline was last above $3.65 per gallon in February, when it reached its highs for the year so far. Gasoline prices are now rising with the steep jump in the price of oil, which started moving higher on concerns about unrest in Egypt.

But there are also concerns about supply, due to reduced output from Libya. Wednesday's big move higher in West Texas Intermediate came after U.S. inventories showed an unusually large drop for a second week, and the biggest two-week drop in inventories in 30 years.
West Texas Intermediate crude futures, for August delivery, rose $2.99 on the U.S. inventory report to $106.52 per barrel, its highest price since March, 2012. Oil prices are up 11.6 percent in two week.
"Refinery output is at the highest it's been since 2007 so I think we'll see a more tempered climb but unfortunately very short term, there's unquestionably a mini spike here," Kloza said.
Kloza does not expect gasoline to keep seeing steep spikes, unless some new geopolitical crisis sends crude prices sharply higher.

"There is a perception that it's not safe to be short right now, and that means higher prices for motorists," said Kloza.
