LOS ANGELES (CNS) - The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in Los Angeles County rose three-tenths of a cent today to $3.624, one day after increasing two-tenths of a cent.

The average price is eight-tenths of a cent more than one week ago, 1.5 cents less than one month ago, and 61.1 cents higher than one year ago, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service. It has risen 47.3 cents since the start of the year.

The Orange County average price rose two-tenths of a cent to $3.562, one day after increasing nine-tenths of a cent. It is 1.6 cents higher than one week ago, 1.9 cents lower than one month ago, and 57.1 cents more than one year ago. It has risen 44.6 cents since the start of the year.

“Southern California gas prices are remarkably stable this year, staying within a range of 15-20 cents since mid-April,” said Jeffrey Spring, the Automobile Club of Southern California's corporate communications manager.

“Unfortunately, these stable prices are at much higher levels than in the previous couple of years. The average gas price paid by motorists in Los Angeles was $2.79 in 2016 and $3.04 in 2017. This year to date, the average Los Angeles regular unleaded price is $3.57.”
