The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego County dropped a half-cent Saturday to $3.577, the 19th decrease in the past 21 days, and its lowest amount since March 28.
The average price is 2.2 cents less than one week ago, 11.3 cents lower than one month ago and 2.7 cents below what it was one year ago, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.
“The California Energy Commission last week reported a drop in gasoline inventory after refineries scaled back California fuel production, but on Wednesday the commission reported that inventory is back up, so there is still reason for prices to continue decreasing,” said Jeffrey Spring, the Automobile Club of Southern California’s corporate communications manager.
