LOS AN­GE­LES (CNS) — The av­er­age price of a gal­lon of self­serve reg­u­lar gaso­line in Los An­ge­les County rose Satur­day for the sec­ond time in 60 days, in­creas­ing two­tenths of a cent to $3.605.

The av­er­age price de­creased for 53 con­sec­u­tive days, rose one­tenth of a cent on Sun­day and was un­changed Thurs­day, ac­cord­ing to fig­ures from the AAA and Oil Price In­for­ma­tion Ser­vice.

It dropped one cent Fri­day to its low­est amount since Aug. 30.

The av­er­age price is 1.7 cents less than one week ago and 19.8 cents lower than one month ago, but 23.8 cents more than one year ago.

The Or­ange County av­er­age price dropped two­tenths of a cent to $3.534, its low­est amount since March 25. It is 1.1 cents less than one week ago and 19.4 cents lower than one month ago, but 20.7 cents more than one year ago.

Cal­i­for­nia had the na­tion’s high­est av­er­age gas price in 2019, the sec­ond time in 20 years it had that dis­tinc­tion.

The only other year Cal­i­for­nia’s av­er­age an­nual price sur­passed that of Hawaii was 2015 when an ex­plo­sion at the Exxon Mo­bil re­fin­ery in Tor­rance caused ma­jor sup­ply is­sues, said Jef­frey Spring, the Au­to­mo­bile Club of South­ern Cal­i­for­nia’s cor­po­rate com­mu­ni­ca­tions man­ager.
