SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego County dropped Monday for the 10th time in 12 days, decreasing eight-tenths of a cent to $4.018.
The average price is 3.9 cents less than one week ago and 26.7 cents lower than one year ago, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.
However, the average price is 12.5 cents higher than one month ago, partially because of a 12-day streak of increases immediately before the price drops began.
The average price has fallen 4.9 cents over the past 12 days, including three-tenths of a cent on Sunday.
