LOS ANGELES (CNS) - The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in Los Angeles County rose one-tenth of a cent today to $4.403 one day after dropping one-tenth of a cent.

The average price is four-tenths of a cent more than one week ago, 2.3 cents higher than one month ago and $1.176 greater than one year ago, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service. The average price has risen $1.171 since the start of the year.

The Orange County average price was unchanged, remaining at $4.366, one day after dropping three-tenths of a cent. It is a half-cent less than one week ago but 1.6 cents more than one month ago and $1.162 higher than one year ago.

The Orange County average price has risen $1.158 since the start of the year.

``After the first weekly price drop of 2021 last month in many areas, local prices rose slightly last week after a brief refinery outage, but so far do not seem to be affected by Hurricane Ida-related issues since no oil or gasoline is supplied to California from Gulf Coast refineries,'' said Jeffrey Spring, the Automobile Club of Southern California's corporate communications manager.

``Price increases all this year mean that Labor Day travelers will be paying the highest prices ever for this holiday.''
