SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego County rose Saturday to its highest amount since Sept. 25, 2015, increasing 3.6 cents to $3.079.
The daily increase was the largest since March 12, 2016, according to figures from the AAA and the Oil Price Information Service.
The average price has risen nine of the past 10 days, increasing 9.4 cents, including 1.6 cents on Friday.
The average price is 8.7 cents more than one week ago, 13.2 cents higher than one month ago and 36.2 cents greater than one year ago.
The rising price is the result of disruption to "the entire supply chain" caused by Hurricane Harvey even though "California's gasoline and oil supplies do not come from the Gulf Coast," said Jeffrey Spring, the Automobile Club of Southern California's corporate communications manager.
