Gas prices are on the rise in San Diego
Last Updated: 212 days ago
SAN DIEGO - The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline continues to go up in San Diego County.
The price went up 1.4 cents overnight to 3.91 a gallon, according to AAA and Oil Price Information Service.
The average price has risen four consecutive days following a 17-day streak of falling prices and is 2.5 cents more than one week ago, but 12.5 cents lower than last month and 30.8 cents less than one year ago.
The increases follow a rise in the wholesale price which analysts attribute to record low stockpiles of gasoline stemming from a drop in production.
The decrease is being blamed on scheduled refinery repairs and unplanned unit shutdowns.
