San Diego County average gas price rises for 35th time in 37 days

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego County rose three-tenths of cent Wednesday to $4.065, its highest amount since July 30, 2015.

The average price has increased 35 of the past 37 days, rising 72.3 cents, including two-tenths of a cent on Tuesday, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service. The rising prices are the result of a series of refinery issues that have reduced supply, according to Jeffrey Spring, the Automobile Club of Southern California’s corporate communications manager.

The average price is 1.6 cents more than one week ago, 57.5 cents higher than one month ago and 43.7 cents greater than one year ago.
