The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in Los Angeles County was unchanged Thursday for the second consecutive day after rising one-tenth of a cent for two consecutive days.
The average price of $4.125 is 3.9 cents more than one week ago, 43.4 cents higher than one month ago and 45.2 cents greater than one year ago, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.
The Orange County average price dropped three-tenths of a cent to $4.099, one day after remaining unchanged. It is 3.6 cents more than one week ago, 45.4 cents higher than one month ago and 46.7 cents greater than one year ago.
“Price averages in the region have not moved up too much in the last several days but they are not coming down either due to continued refinery production problems,” Marie Montgomery of the Automobile Club of Southern California told City News Service.
“Once refineries start coming back online, the prices should start to come down. The expectation would be that refineries would be up and running at full capacity sometime in May, but that all depends on the extent of needed repairs.”
