A sudden spike in gas prices this week has hit Southern California, and numbers at the pumps in Hermosa Beach are no different.
The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gas in Los Angeles County was recorded Friday as $3.996, marking the largest daily increase seen since February of last year and the highest amount since June 7, according to City News Service reports.
"If prices continue to increase at this pace, most areas will have averages above $4 a gallon in the next few week," said Auto Club of Southern California spokesperson Jeffrey Spring in a statement.
The average price, which has risen 11 consecutive days and 23 times in 24 days, is 15.9 cents more than it was one week ago, 26.6 cents higher than a month ago and 49.4 cents greater than a year ago, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.
