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 $4.407, one day after increasing by four-tenths of a cent.
The back-to-back hikes follow Saturday's drop of four-tenths of a cent.
The average price is one-tenth of a cent higher than one week ago, 1.9 cents more than one month ago and $1.185 greater than one year ago, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.
The Orange County average price dropped two-tenths of a cent to $4.361, the third straight day it has changed by that amount. It increased two-tenths of a cent Sunday, one day after dropping two-tenths of a cent.
It is six-tenths of a cent less than one week ago, but two-tenths of a cent more than one month ago and $1.161 higher than one year ago.
“Hurricane Ida has had little impact on local gas prices since none of Southern California's supply originates in the Gulf Coast,'' said Jeffrey Spring, the Automobile Club of Southern California's corporate communications manager.
“Also, local refineries have increased production and imports of gasoline products remains robust, giving the state ample inventory.''
