Gas prices continue to drop

The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular unleaded gasoline in San Diego County resumed its decline today after a one-day interruption, falling two-tenths of a cent to $2.161.

The average price is nine-tenths of a cent less than last week, 11.1 cents less than last month, $1.477 less than at this time last year and $2.469 less than the record high of $4.63 set on June 19, according to figures from AAA and the Oil Price Information Service.

The average price rose one-tenth of a cent Sunday, just the third increase in 32 days.

The national average for unleaded regular rose for the seventh time in eight days, increasing three-tenths of a cent today to $1.956, 4.6 cents more than a week ago and 3.1 cents more than a month ago, but $1.308 less than this time last year and $2.158 less than the record high of $4.114 set July 17.

California’s gasoline prices are typically higher than the national average and among the highest in the nation because of taxes and a state law mandating a special blend of fuel to reduce emissions.
