SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego County rose Thursday to its highest amount since mid-October 2008, increasing 1.4 cents to $3.368.
The average price is 2.3 cents more than a week ago, 1.9 cent higher than one month ago and 37.4 cents above what it was one year ago, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.
The average price rose 2 cents on Wednesday after decreasing 13 of the previous 19 days.
"A couple of days does not a trend make," said Marie Montgomery of the Automobile Club of Southern California.
"We've been having essentially flat gasoline prices for the previous two weeks," she said. "A couple of pennies up is definitely not a spike. We can't really even say it's the end of a plateau until we see what goes on in the next few days."
Hot weather is expected again Tuesday throughout San Diego County though temperatures should be about five degrees below Monday's record-breaking heat.
