In Riverside County, a historical record was also registered with $6,331 dollars, while in Orange the mark was held on Saturday, with $6,429 dollars; fuel in southern California left behind the record it reached during June

Los Angeles County has never seen a price of $6,467 for a gallon of regular gasoline.

On Monday morning, fuel hit an all-time high that no one in the county wanted to see, except maybe the oil companies or gas station owners.

The average price of a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline in the Los Angeles-Long Beach area rose less than a penny Monday morning, but the increase was just enough to hit $6,467, according to data from the American Automobile Association (AAA).

Regular gasoline also hit an all-time high in Riverside County at $6,331, while Orange County broke an all-time high on Saturday at $6,429 a gallon.

In Ventura County, the price of fuel is $6,409 dollars, in San Bernardino County it woke up this Monday at $6,320 dollars, while in San Diego County it is $6,402 dollars.

According to information from AAA, the average price of regular gasoline in California is $6,382, still about 5 cents below the record price set in June.

However, the California county with the highest gas price per gallon is Mono at $7,137, while Alpine is the cheapest at $5,559.

According to figures from the association, this Monday the average price of fuel nationwide is $3,799 dollars.

According to AAA, domestic demand, in combination with planned and unplanned maintenance of refineries, are some of the reasons for the increase in gasoline prices.

Gov. Gavin Newsom, who called California’s disproportionate increase in fuel prices “extortion from the oil companies,” called on the state to switch to its cheaper winter gasoline blend earlier than scheduled for this year with the purpose of trying to reduce gasoline prices.
