The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in the Inland Empire rose eight-tenths of a cent Sunday to $4.119, the most since Aug. 8, 2008.

The average price in Riverside and San Bernardino counties is 7.8 cents above what it was one week ago, 21.4 cents higher than one month ago and $1.019 greater than it was one year ago, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.

However, the average price is 49.5 cents less than the record high of $4.614 set on June 22, 2008.

The average price has risen 17 of the past 18 days and 57 of the past 59. A 41-day streak of increases ended March 22 with a decrease of a half-cent. A 12-day streak ended Monday with a decrease of one-tenth of a cent.
