The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego County dropped Tuesday to its lowest amount since Feb. 17, 2011, decreasing nine-tenths of a cent to $3.513.
The average price has dropped 19 consecutive days and 45 of the past 46, decreasing 30.9 cents over that span, including nine-tenths of a cent on Monday, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.
The average price is 9.7 cents less than one week ago, 22.9 cents lower than one month ago and 27.4 cents below what it was one year ago.
The falling pump prices are the result of plummeting prices for oil and wholesale gasoline, according to Jeffrey Spring of the Automobile Club of Southern California.
“Provided no supply issues occur locally, we can expect prices to continue dropping at least in the near future,” Spring said.
