The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego County rose 2.2 cents Saturday to $4.086, one day after increasing one-tenth of a cent.
The average price is the highest it’s been since July 30, 2015, and is 2.6 cents more than one week ago, 52.9 cents higher than one month ago and 44.1 cents greater than one year ago, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.
The rising prices are the result of a series of refinery issues that reduced supply, according to Jeffrey Spring, the Automobile Club of Southern California’s corporate communications manager.
