The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego County rose 1.1 cents Saturday to $3.653, one day after increasing four-tenths of a cent.
The average price is eight-tenths of a cent more than one week ago, 6.5 cents more than one month ago and 53.9 cents higher than one year ago, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.
It has increased 53.1 cents since the start of the year.
“Local gasoline demand continues to be strong while refineries are making less fuel as they convert to production of winter-blend gasoline that can be sold in pumps starting Nov. 1,” said Jeffrey Spring, the Automobile Club of Southern California’s corporate communications manager. “Those factors have prevented prices from dropping.”
