The average price of self-serve regular gasoline in Orange County rose Thursday for the 11th time in 12 days following a 75-day streak of dropping prices, increasing 1 cent to $3.608.

The Orange County average price has risen 7.3 cents over the past 12 days, including one-tenth of a cent Wednesday, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.

Corner station at $3.63, Costco station at $3.49, Am/Pm $3.49, Stop-n-Go cash $3.45, (Pilot in Kingman $2.89) If I buy gas at Costco, then it should be in route to/from a destination to be most economical. Getting an extra 2% back on card purchases means I'll shave 21 cents off the corner station pricing. Why are people still rewarding the corner stations for keeping the retail prices high? Is it worth throwing away 3 to 5 dollars per tank just to use the corner pumps? Stop at the cash stations. Shop smarter.
