SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The average price of a gallon of regular self-service gasoline in San Diego County rose to a record $ 6,015 on Monday, the 34th consecutive rise.
The average price has risen $ 1,271 during the series, including two tenths of a cent on Sunday. That’s 9.3 cents more than a week ago, $ 1,168 more than a month ago and $ 2,069 higher than a year ago, according to the Oil and AAA Information Service. .
Friday’s rocket attack on an oil distribution facility in Saudi Arabia triggered another series of increases in the price of Brent crude oil at ICE Futures Europe, which could mean further increases in pumping prices.
The price gained $ 12.72 a barrel last week, reaching $ 120.65 on Friday, $ 7.33 less than the 52-week high of $ 127.98 on March 8.
The cost of crude oil represents just over half the price of the pump, according to the US Energy Information Administration. The rest of the price includes other gasoline items, production costs, distribution costs, overheads for all those involved in production, distribution and sales, California coal compensation taxes and fees paid by refineries.
Good morning San Diego, KUSI’s Allie Wagner was out at the pumps to learn all the ins and outs of the Southern California gas crisis.
