SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 13-day streak of increases ended Monday when the average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego County fell three-tenths of a cent to $3.78.
The average price rose 16.4 cents during the streak to its highest among since Oct. 21, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.
The average price is 8.4 cents more than one week ago and 14 cents higher than one month ago but 46.7 cents less than one year ago.
The rising prices are the result of the annual refinery maintenance season when supplies of winter blend gasoline drop as refineries start production of the more expensive summer blend, according to the Automobile Club of Southern California.
