29 Day streak of increasing gas prices ends in

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – A 29-day streak of increases that pushed the average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego County to its highest amount since July 30, 2015, ended today with a decrease of one-tenth of a cent to $4.049.

The average price rose 70.7 cents during the streak, including seven-tenths of a cent on Tuesday, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service. The streak was the longest since a 35-day streak from Jan. 30-March 5, 2015.

The average price is 14.1 cents more than one week ago, 70.6 cents higher than one month ago and 47 cents greater than one year ago.

The rising prices were the result of a series of refinery issues that reduced supply, according to Jeffrey Spring, the Automobile Club of Southern California’s corporate communications manager.
