The price of gasoline in Orange County has risen to its highest levels since Sept. 26. Patch file photo.

The Orange County average price of self-serve gasoline rose to its highest amount since Sept. 26 today, increasing eight-tenths of a cent to $3.941. 

It has risen 27 consecutive days and is 7.2 cents more than one week ago and 32 cents higher than one month ago but 35 cents less than one year ago.

The Orange County average price has risen 32 cents over the past 27 days, including two-tenths of a cent on Monday.

The rising prices are the result of the annual refinery maintenance season when supplies of winter blend gasoline drop as refineries start production of the more expensive summer blend, according to Marie Montgomery of the Automobile Club of Southern California.
