Average gas price rises for 29th straight day in LA County and hits record high in Orange County

LOS ANGELES (CNS) — The median price for a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in Los Angeles County rose for the 29th straight day Saturday, rising 6.6 cents to $6,449 — just 1.3 cents below the record high of $6,462 posted on March 14. June.

The median price is up more than $1.20 over the past 29 days, including 12.2 cents on Friday and 15.3 cents on Thursday — the latter the biggest daily rise since a record 19, according to AAA figures, 2 cents on October 5, 2012 and Oil Price Information Service.

It’s 76 cents up from a week ago, $1.196 up from a month ago and $2.038 up from a year ago.

Orange County’s median price rose 4.3 cents to a record high of $6.429, two days after posting 15.9 cents on Thursday, the biggest daily increase since a record 19.5 cents hike on Oct. 5, 2012 .

The median price in Orange County is 76.1 cents more than a week ago, $1.261 more than a month ago and $2.063 more than a year ago.

“This week saw the biggest hike in gas prices since they rose 77 cents in a week in March,” said Doug Shupe, communications manager for the Automobile Club of Southern California. “Until the state receives significant amounts of imported gasoline and local refineries are fully operational again, we will likely continue to see pump price hikes.”

The national median price rose for the 11th straight day after a 98-day streak of declines, rising three-tenths of a cent to $3.80. It’s up 12.6 cents over the past 11 days, including 1.5 cents on Friday. It’s 10 cents more than a week ago, 2.9 cents less than a month ago and 60.8 cents more than a year ago.

The national median price is $1,216 below the record of $5,016 set on June 14th.
