The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in Los Angeles County Friday is $3.91 a gallon, but prices at many stations are at $4 or more a gallon. The average price has jumped 30 cents from a month ago. 

Figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service show the L.A. County average price is the highest in California. The lowest average price is $3.63 in Modesto.

The Orange County average price rose 6.5 cents, to $3.90, its highest amount since last November and 30 cents higher than one month ago. The Orange County price is the third highest in the state, behind L.A. and San Luis Obispo counties.

The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gas in Riverside and San Bernardino counties is $3.86, the highest price since November 30, 2012.

"The usual culprits are being listed as reasons for the spike – high oil prices, Middle East tension, local refinery incidents and refineries being brought down for maintenance as they prepare to produce the summer blend of gasoline," said Jeffrey Spring of the Automobile Club of Southern California.
