The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego County rose 1.4 cents Saturday to $3.728, its largest increase since April 27.
The average price is seven-tenths of a cent more than one week ago, 22.9 cents lower than one month ago, and 5.7 cents more than one year ago, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.
“Los Angeles wholesale gasoline prices jumped this week on news that after five weeks of inventory buildup on the West Coast, gasoline supplies declined in the last week,” said Jeffrey Spring, the Automobile Club of Southern California’s corporate communications manager.
“Demand is being at least partially fueled by the all-time record 3.5 million Southern Californians expected to travel over the Independence Day holiday, a 3.9 percent increase from last year.”
