The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego County decreased by one-tenth of a cent Sunday to $3.108.
The average price is 2 cents more than a week ago and 15.4 cents higher than a month ago, but 65.1 cents less than one year ago, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.
The 3.2-cent increase in the gasoline tax that went into effect Wednesday has been balanced by a drop in the wholesale price “because a pause on reopening the economy has created worries about fuel demand,” said Doug Shupe, a corporate communications & programs manager with the Automobile Club of Southern California.
