SAN DIEGO COUNTY, Calif. — The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego County was unchanged Tuesday, remaining at $4.154 after rising 19 times in 20 days to its highest amount since Oct. 16, 2019.
The average price increased 11.6 cents over the previous 20 days, including two-tenths of a cent on Monday, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.
The average price is 2.2 cents higher than one week ago, 14.5 cents more than one month ago and $1.327 greater than one year ago. It has risen 108 of the past 118 days, increasing 80.9 cents, and 92.7 cents since the start of the year.
The large price increase from one year ago is the result of a significant decrease during the early stage of the coronavirus pandemic, when driving and demand dropped substantially because of stay-at-home orders intended to reduce the spread of the virus.
