SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego County rose Sunday for the fifth time in six days, increasing four-tenths of a cent to $3.616.
The average price is 1.8 cents more than a week ago, but 9.5 cents less than one month ago and 12.6 lower than one year ago, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.
The increases began Tuesday, one day after the average price dropped to its lowest amount since Dec. 28.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled Tuesday for a former San Diego police officer accused of groping four women during pat-down searches last year.
Chula Vista police will be looking for drivers talking or texting on cell phones Tuesday and through the end of the month as part of "Distracting Driving Awareness Month."
Police were on the lookout Tuesday for the man who fired a shot while robbing a Rolando-area smoke shop and his accomplice who emptied its cash register.
