The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego County dropped one-tenth of a cent Sunday to $4.306, the ninth time in 11 days it has changed by two-tenths of a cent or less.

The average price is 1.3 cents higher than one week ago, 8.2 cents more than one month ago and $1.14 greater than one year ago, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.

It has risen $1.07 since the start of the year, including a half-cent on Saturday, because of a sharp increase in the oil price and increased demand due to more people driving to work, according to Jeffrey Spring, the Automobile Club of Southern California’s corporate communications manager.
