SAN DIEGO — The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego County rose one-tenth of a cent Sunday to $4.55. 

The slight increase comes one day after a run of 27 increases in 28 days ended Saturday.

The average price increased 16 cents during the run to its highest amount since October of 2012, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service. 

The average price is 1.5 cents more than one week ago, 16 cents higher than one month ago and $1.39 more than one year ago.

The increases at the pump have been reduced because stations are now allowed to start selling the winter blend of gasoline, which is generally cheaper to produce, according to the Automobile Club of Southern California.
