The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego County dropped six-tenths of a cent Sunday to $3.648, its 13th consecutive decrease.
The average price is 6.2 cents less than one week ago and 19 cents lower than one month ago, but 40.9 cents more than one year ago, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Prices Information Service.
It has risen 52.2 cents since the start of the year.
“The price drops are happening nationwide as well as in California because oil prices have dropped dramatically,” said Jeffrey Spring, the Automobile Club of Southern California’s corporate communications manager. “There is a wide range of prices right now locally because some gas station chains are lowering prices more aggressively than others.”
