The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego County dropped Saturday for the 25th time in 28 days, decreasing 1 cent to $3.635.
The average price is 4.2 cents less than one week ago and 10.6 cents lower than one month ago, but 3.3 cents more than one year ago, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service. It has dropped 11 cents over the past 26 days, including seven-tenths of a cent Friday.
“Oil prices are down over the last month because of worries over the trade war with China and its economic effects,” said Jeffrey Spring, the Automobile Club of Southern California’s corporate communications manager. “If Southern California gasoline supplies stay healthy, the lower oil prices are likely to push down pump prices further in the coming weeks.”
