Gas prices in most Southern California regions declined by about a penny over the last week, according to the Automobile Club of Southern California’s Weekend Gas Watch. Today’s retail statewide average is $3.21 a gallon for regular unleaded, one cent lower than last week.

The average price of self-serve regular gasoline in the Los Angeles-Long Beach area is $3.20 per gallon, which is one cent lower than last week, three cents lower than a month ago, and 95 cents lower than last year. In San Diego, the average price is $3.19, which is one cent lower than last Thursday, four cents more than last month, and 92 cents lower than last year.

On the Central Coast, the average price is $3.22, which is once cent lower than last week, three cents lower than last month, and 89 cents lower than last year.  In Riverside, the average per-gallon price is $3.15, which is one cent lower than last week, three cents lower than last month, and 92 cents lower than last year. In Bakersfield, the $3.17 average price is two cents higher than last week, one cent higher than last month, and 78 cents lower than a year ago today.

“A year ago at this time, Southland motorists were paying over $4 a gallon on average for regular unleaded because of reported massive damage from an explosion at the Torrance refinery,” said Auto Club spokesman Jeffrey Spring.
