The average gas price in San Diego County is now more than two dollars higher than it was one year ago.

As of June 16, the average price for a gallon of regular gasoline was $6.36 cents. While there was a .06 cent drop on Thursday, the average price has risen 19 times in the last 20 days, setting records on 18 of those 19 days.

The average price increased 35.5 cents over the previous 20 days according to figures from the AAA and the Oil Price Information Service. The price is 4.1 cents higher than one week ago, 40.9 cents more than one month ago and $2.146 greater than one year ago.

The rest of the price includes the other components of gasoline, production costs, distribution costs, overhead costs for all involved in production, distribution and sales, taxes and carbon offset fees in California paid by the refineries.
