Average San Diego County Gas Price Rises To Highest Amount Since 2015

Credit GasBuddy

Diesel fuel hit its highest national average price in more than three years at about $3.06 per gallon.

The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego County rose seven-tenths of a cent Wednesday for the second consecutive day to $3.657, its highest amount since August 22, 2015. They begin letting their vehicles get closer to empty so that they don't have to spend as much money each week keeping the auto filled.

Compare that to the national average of $2.81/gallon, which is up more than 15 cents over the past month.

In a bit of good news, AAA reported Kansas has the sixth cheapest average gas prices in the nation this week.

Four years ago, gas prices reached as high as $3.70 a gallon about this time of that year.

Gas prices also have a lot to do with the day of the week.

The price of regular gas shot up to $1.39 a litre at some gas stations by Wednesday morning, an increase of over 10 cents a litre.

The summer driving season will be here soon and price increases are continuing.

But higher oil prices are certainly an inconvenience for drivers, especially those with lower incomes.

Analysts don't expect prices to rise anywhere near the 2008 rate, when the average national price was $4.11 per gallon.

On the week, gasoline demand dropped from its record high level the previous week, falling by 774,000 barrels per day, according to the Energy Information Administration. "Having a tank of gas last until Sunday or even Monday each week can collectively save drivers $2.6 billion, and spare the headache of not being able to find an available pump", said DeHaan.

"It seems like they may be changing patterns a little bit, but as far as canceling a trip to Maine or somewhere in New England, I don't necessarily think that happens with prices where they are going", he said.

According to data from AAA, the average gas price in the Raleigh-Cary area right now is $2.707, up from $2.543 at the start of April.

Creeping gas prices haven't stopped drivers from using the Maine Turnpike, which recorded 195,303 average daily vehicle trips in 2017, nearly 17 percent more than in 2010. That would translate into an additional $190 spent on fuel by the average USA household this year compared with last, the agency said. The second and third-largest oil producers, Saudi Arabia and Russian Federation respectively, have been cutting off excess production in an effort to get oil prices to rise.
