The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in Los Angeles County rose three-tenths of a cent Saturday to $3.134, its highest amount since March 29.
The average price is 1.9 cents more than one week ago and 9.3 cents higher than one month ago, but 62 cents less 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 $3.114, after increasing for 15 of the previous 17 days. It is 1.8 cents more than one week ago and 9.7 cents higher than one month ago, but 59.7 cents less than one year ago.
The dropping wholesale price and rising supply “should at least temper the price increases we’ve been seeing,” Jeffrey Spring, the Automobile Club of Southern California’s corporate communications manager, told City News Service.
