Average Riverside County Gas Price Increases For Seventh Time in Eight Days

RIVERSIDE – The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in Riverside County rose on September 23rd for the seventh time in eight days, increasing four-tenths of a cent to $3.702.
The average price has increased 12 cents over the past eight days, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service. It rose six consecutive days then was unchanged Sunday.
The average price is 11.3 cents more than one week ago, 19.7 cents higher than one month ago and 12.9 cents greater than one year ago. It has risen 44.3 cents since the start of the year.
The increases were initially sparked by rising oil prices which came in reaction to an attack on oil production facilities in Saudi Arabia, according to Jeffrey Spring, the Automobile Club of Southern California’s corporate communications manager.
A later factor in the increases was flaring at PBF Energy’s Torrance refinery, typically a sign of production problems which lead to a lower supply of gasoline and higher prices.
Oil prices dropped later last week “as the industry digested Saudi assertions that the country could repair damaged facilities relatively quickly” to avoid a reduction in supply, Spring said.
