The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego County remained unchanged Saturday at $3.158, its highest amount since March 26.

The average price is 2.4 cents more than one week ago and 11.3 cents higher than one month ago, but 56.7 cents less than one year ago, according to figures released by the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.

It had increased for 12 of the previous 15 days.

The dropping wholesale price and rising supply “should at least temper the price increases we’ve been seeing,” Jeffrey Spring, the Automobile Club of Southern California’s corporate communications manager, told City News Service.
