San Diego County gasoline price rises for 13th consecutive day

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego County rose eight-tenths of a cent Sunday to $4.142, its highest amount since Oct. 29.

The average price has increased 13 consecutive days, rising 41.5 cents over that span, including 1.7 cents on Saturday, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.

The average price is 16.1 cents more than one week ago, 48.1 cents higher than one month ago and 31.2 cents greater than one year ago.

The average price matches Orange County as the third highest in the state, behind Los Angeles ($4.157) and San Luis Obispo ($4.147) counties.

The rising prices are the result of low levels of production in Southern California stemming from refinery maintenance, according to Jeffrey Spring of the Automobile Club of Southern California.
