San Diego County Gasoline Price Falls

Posted: Updated:

The average price of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego County fell three-tenths of a cent today to $2.165 per gallon, the 24th decline in 29 days.

The price is 3.2 cents less than last week, 14.3 cents less than last month, $1.476 less than at this time last year and $2.465 less than the record high of $4.63 set on June 19, according to figures from AAA and the Oil Price Information Service.

The average decreased 22 times in 25 days, then rose three-tenths of a cent Monday, fell two-tenths of a cent Tuesday and was unchanged Wednesday.

The national average for unleaded regular rose for the third time in four days, increasing 1.3 cents today to $1.933 -- two-tenths of a cent more than a week ago, but 2.7 cents less than a month ago, $1.346 less than this time last year and $2.181 less than the record high of $4.114 set July 17.

The national average had fallen seven consecutive days, declining 3.9 cents over that span, before rising two-tenths of a cent Monday, remaining unchanged Tuesday and rising 1 cent Wednesday.

California's gasoline prices are typically higher than the national average and among the highest in the nation because of taxes and a state law mandating a special blend of fuel to reduce polluting emissions.
