It is 22.5 cents more than one week ago, 70.4 cents higher than one month ago and 46.4 cents greater than one year ago. The recent sharp increases are the result of a series of refinery issues that have reduced supply, according to Jeffrey Spring, the Automobile Club of Southern California’s corporate communications manager.“Out of the 10 major refineries in California, six are dealing with planned maintenance, unplanned breakdowns or both, and four of those refineries are in Southern California,” Spring said.“(Wednesday’s) report from the U.S. Energy Information Administration indicated that Los Angeles gasoline inventories dropped by about two million barrels, and a source reported to Oil Price Information Service that Southern California received no imported gasoline in the last week. Because demand also typically increases at this time of year, this has posed seriousconcerns for supply.” KUSI Newsroom, April 14, 2019 Posted: April 14, 2019 San Diego gas prices rise for the 27th consecutive day KUSI Newsroom Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitterlast_img
