SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego County was at its lowest amount on Thanksgiving since 2008, dropping six-tenths of a cent today to $2.76.
The average price has dropped for 20 consecutive days, decreasing 14.2 cents during that span to its lowest amount since Feb. 12, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.
The average price is five cents less than one week ago, 13 cents lower than one month ago and 33 cents below what it was one year ago.
"With more than 3 million Southern Californians traveling by car this weekend, the average driver will be paying about $42 per 15-gallon fill-up, which is the lowest amount since the $32 fill-ups in 2008 at the start of the recession," said Jeffrey Spring, the Automobile Club of Southern California's corporate communications manager.
"Barring any supply issues, we should continue to see price declines through the end of the year."
