For the eighth week in a row, gas prices moved higher in Los Angeles, according to data from the Energy Information Administration.


The average gallon of self-serve regular in the Los Angeles area was $2.280 for the week ended March 7, rising above the previous week's $2.216. L.A. gas prices are 11 cents higher per gallon than they were one year ago.


The statewide average was $2.229 per gallon for the week ended March 7, up from $2.176 in the prior week and nearly 12 cents higher than they were one year earlier.


California held onto the title as the most expensive state in which to buy a gallon of gas, and Los Angeles was the most expensive city out of the 10 surveyed. While San Francisco was the only other city to break the $2 mark for the week ended Feb. 28, six of the 10 cities surveyed did so just one week later.
