Gas prices on the rise

Prices at the pump are continuing to skyrocket with the average price of a gallon of self-serve unleaded gasoline in San Diego County rising Wednesday for the 30th consecutive day, increasing nearly 3 cents to 2 dollars and 81-and-a-half cents. Today’s average is nearly 14 cents more than at this time last week and nearly 46 cents more than a month ago.

But it’s almost a dollar and 46 cents less than at this time last year--and a dollar and 81-

and-a-half cents less than the record high of 4 dollars and 63 cents.
