The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in Riverside County rose two-tenths of a cent Saturday to $4.316 after dropping two-tenths of a cent for two consecutive days.

The average price is three-tenths of a cents higher than one week ago, 1.5 cents more than one month ago and $1.141 greater than a year ago, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service. It has risen $1.14 since the start of the year.

“Price increases all this year mean that Labor Day travelers will be paying the highest prices ever for this holiday,” said Jeffrey Spring, the Automobile Club of Southern California’s corporate communications manager.
