The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in Los Angeles County rose today for the sixth time in seven
days, increasing seven-tenths of a cent
The average price is 4.1 cents more than one week ago but 13
cents less than one month ago and 29.8 cents lower than one year
ago, according to figures from the AAA
and Oil Price Information Service.
The Orange County average price rose today for the seventh time in eight days, increasing seven-tenths of a cent to $3.849. It is 4.3 cents more than one week ago, but 13.7 cents less than one month ago and 30.6 cents lower than one year ago.
“We have seen wholesale prices jumping in the last several days
to about the same level they were a month ago, but
luckily, we are seeing only small price
jumps in Southern California markets,” Marie Montgomery of the Automobile Club of Southern California told City News
“Middle East tensions have caused an increase in oil prices
likely the primary driver behind these increases.”
