Southern California gas prices barely budged in the week leading up to the Thanksgiving holiday, according to the Automobile Club of Southern California’s Weekend Gas Watch. Today’s retail statewide average is $3.17 a gallon for regular unleaded, which is the same as last week.

The average price of self-serve regular gasoline in the Los Angeles-Long Beach area is $3.15 per gallon, which is unchanged from last week, three cents lower than a month ago, and 75 cents lower than last year. In San Diego, the average price is $3.15, which is the same as last Wednesday, two cents less than last month, and 73 cents lower than last year.

On the Central Coast, the average price is $3.19, which is the same as last week and last month, and 78 cents lower than last year.  In Riverside, the average per-gallon price is $3.10, which is unchanged from last week, two cents lower than last month, and 70 cents lower than last year. In Bakersfield, the $3.10 average price is the same as last week, four cents lower than last month, and 88 cents lower than a year ago today.

“The Auto Club is projecting fewer travelers this holiday because of the pandemic,” said Auto Club spokesman Jeffrey Spring. “After Thanksgiving, we may start to see prices drop again.”

The Weekend Gas Watch monitors the average price of gasoline. As of 9 a.m. on Nov. 25, averages are:
