SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego County fell Saturday to its lowest amount since Feb. 26, declining 1.1 cents to $3.741.
Ten consecutive daily declines have dropped the average price 6 cents below what it was one week ago and 4.1 cents lower than a month ago, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service. However, the average price is 57.7 cents higher than a year ago.
Analysts credit the declining pump price to the lower price of crude oil.
