Soaring gas prices are continuing to affect Americans across the country, but some cities are seeing astronomically high costs per gallon well above the statewide average.

California, Nevada, Alaska, Hawaii and Washington are the states with the highest gas prices across the U.S. and are home to cities with the priciest pumps.

Below is a breakdown of the five cities with the highest gas prices in the country as of Wednesday, according to transportation company AAA.
