LOS ANGELES (CNS) – The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in Los Angeles County dropped two-tenths of a cent for the third consecutive day today to $3.187.
The average price has dropped eight of the past nine days, decreasing 1.3 cents, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service. It is 1.1 cents less than one week ago, 3.1 cents lower than one month ago, and $1.03 cheaper than one year ago.
The Orange County average price also dropped two-tenths of a cent to $3.149. It is 1.4 cents less than one week ago, 3.9 cents lower than one month ago and $1.02 cheaper than one year ago.
“Supplies of the `summer blend’ of California gasoline are still plentiful, but prices are still just inching downward,” said Jeffrey Spring, the Automobile Club of Southern California’s corporate communications manager.
“However, fall gas prices have not been this low since 2017 and the 80% of fall travelers who plan to drive to their destinations will save about $16 per fill-up compared to last year at this time.”
