San Diego County gasoline price rises again

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego County rose three-tenths of a cent Friday to $3.664, the seventh increase in nine days.

The average price is 2.3 cents more than one week ago but four-tenths of a cent less than one month ago and 6 cents lower than one year ago, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.

The average price has risen 4.6 cents over the past nine days, including seven-tenths of a cent on Thursday.

"Prices are rising less quickly than they were at this time last year, which is hopefully a sign that price increases will be less aggressive this year than in 2012," Jeffrey Spring of the Automobile Club of Southern California said.

About 1 cent of the 5-cent increase since New Year's Day stems from the statewide sales tax increase from 7.25 percent to 7.5 percent under Proposition 30, approved by voters in the November election, according to Spring.
