The business is opening, schools are opening, and all the other activities in LA have started, and people are also coming out on the roads. There is a demand for driving gas, and so are the prices going high.
The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in Los Angeles County is now $1 per gallon higher than at the start of the year. The average price rose from two-tenths of a cent Tuesday to $4.33 one day after increasing a half-cent. The average price has gone by 20 in the past 22 days, and it is the highest since October 2012.
The AAA and the Oil Price Information Service says that it is 2.6 cents more than one week ago, 8.9 cents higher than one month ago, and $1.236 greater than one year ago. The skyrocket gas prices are linked to the increase in the driving gas price.
