The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego County rose two-tenths of a cents Saturday to $4.06, its highest amount since July 30, 2015.
The average price has increased 32 of the past 33 days, rising 71.8 cents, including four-tenths of a cent on Friday, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service. It is 3.6 cents more than one week ago, 69 cents higher than one month ago and 45.9 cents greater than one year ago.
The rising prices are the result of a series of refinery issues that have reduced supply, according to Jeffrey Spring, the Automobile Club of Southern California’s corporate communications manager.
