The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego County dropped Saturday for the 20th consecutive day and the 32nd time in the past 33 days, decreasing 1.9 cents to $3.852, its lowest amount since April 8.
The average price has dropped 24.8 cents over the past 33 days, including 1.3 cents on Friday, according to figures from AAA and the Oil Price Information Service.
The average price is 7.4 cents less than one week ago and 24.1 cents lower than one month ago, but 10.4 cents more than one year ago. Locally, gas was $3.33 a gallon at the beginning of this year.
“Oil prices are dropping due to a surge in stockpiles and worries that worldwide demand will decline because of the trade dispute between the U.S. and China…
“That is helping to drive down fuel prices around the country,” said Jeffrey Spring, the Automobile Club of Southern California’s corporate communications manager.
