SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego County surpassed $3 for the first time since Oct. 4 Tuesday, rising 1.6 cents to $3.01.
The average price has risen for 13 consecutive days, increasing 30 cents, including seven-tenths of a cent on Monday, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.
The increases follow a stretch of eight decreases in nine days totaling 4-cents, which dropped the average price to its lowest amount since Feb. 11.
The 13-day run of increases is the longest since a 19-day streak from April 17 to May 5.
The average price is 16 cents more than one week ago, 26-cents higher than one month ago and 35-cents greater than one year ago.
The rising prices stem from unplanned maintenance at several refineries that have reduced supply, according to Jeffrey Spring, the Automobile Club of Southern California's corporate communications manager.
