SAN DIEGO (CNS) – The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego County rose 4.8 cents Wednesday to $3.51, the 13th consecutive increase after dropping 40 times in 42 days.

The average price has risen 40.1 cents over the past 13 days, including 2.9 cents on Tuesday, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.

The average price is 30.5 cents more than one week ago and 27.3 cents higher than one month ago, but 78.3 cents less than one year ago.

The recent increases are the result of reduced supply caused by a partial reduction of production at Chevron’s Richmond refinery in Northern California following flaring on April 21, according to Jeffrey Spring, the Automobile Club of Southern California’s corporate communications manager.
