SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego County fell today to its lowest amount since Feb. 1, dropping 1 cent to $3.896.
The average price has dropped 55 of the past 58 days, falling 39.8 cents over that span, including 1.1 cents on Thursday, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.
The average price is 5.6 cents less than one week ago, 17.9 cents lower than last month and 30.1 cents below what it was one year ago.
"It's great to experience price declines in the spring instead of spikes, but only now are we seeing the same prices we have before the February spike,'' said Jeffrey Spring of the Automobile Club of Southern California.
"News reports indicate a few potential clouds on the horizon, as gasoline stockpiles in Southern California reportedly have been dropping in recent days and there are reports of additional required refinery maintenance.''
