The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in Los Angeles County rose two-tenths of a cent Sunday to $3.199.

The average price is eight-tenths of a cent less than one week ago, 2.8 cents lower than one month ago and $1.04 cheaper than one year ago — when prices were rising sharply after three Los Angeles-area refineries slowed or halted production due to maintenance issues and no imported gasoline was available, according to Jeffrey Spring, the Automobile Club of Southern California’s corporate communications manager.

The Orange County average price increased one-tenth of a cent to $3.159. It is 1.2 cents less than one week ago, 4.4 cents lower than one month ago and $1.05 cheaper than one year ago, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.
