Gasoline price rise escalates
SOUTHLAND (INT) After briefly hitting the pause button, the upswing in gasoline prices is surging ahead.

There are virtually no gas stations selling 87 octane for under $3 a gallon. The statewide average is $3.22.

In Riverside, the average per-gallon price is 19 cents more than last month, and 47 cents more than at this time last year. In San Bernardino, pump prices are up 6-cents from a week earlier.

The Energy Information Administration (EIA) reports that gasoline demand in early January was nearly four percent higher than at this time last year, and oil prices surged to a three-year high point.

The EIA also predicted that 2018 gasoline consumption could hit a new record for the U.S.
