The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in Riverside County rose two-tenths of a cent Monday for the second consecutive day to $3.496.

The average price is three-tenths of a cent more than one week ago and 32.2 cents higher than one year ago but 2.8 cents less than one month ago, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.

The average price has decreased 1.2 cents since the start of the year. It is stable because of adequate supply to satisfy demand and the absence of refinery issues threatening the supply, according to Marie Montgomery, a public relations specialist with the Automobile Club of Southern California.
