Average Price Of Gas Spikes In Southern California To $3.84

LOS ANGELES (CNS/FOX 11) - The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in Los Angeles County rose Monday to its highest amount since Aug. 29, increasing one-tenth of a cent to $3.838.

The average price has risen by less than a cent of each of the past four days and is two-tenths of a cent more than one week ago and 68.4 cents higher than one month ago, but 39.4 cents less than one year ago, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.

The Orange County average price rose Monday to its highest amount since Aug. 17, increasing three-tenths of a cent to $3.844, 1.9 cents more than one week ago and 73 cents higher than one month ago, but 37.8 cents less than one year ago.

Experts attribute the higher prices to a reduced supply caused by problems at refineries that cut production.
