Southern California gas prices stalled over the past week in most areas and remained stuck at about 30 cents below their all-time record level, according to the Auto Club’s Weekend Gas Watch.  The average price for self-serve regular gasoline in California is $4.40, which is one cent higher than last week.  The average national price is $3.18, which is the same as a week ago.

The average price of self-serve regular gasoline in the Los Angeles-Long Beach area is $4.40 per gallon, which is unchanged from last week, two cents higher than last month, and $1.17 higher than last year. In San Diego, the average price is $4.36, up one cent from than last week and last month, and also $1.13 higher than last year.

On the Central Coast, the average price is $4.37, which is two cents higher than last week, two cents higher than last month, and $1.12 higher than last year.  In Riverside, the average per-gallon price is $4.32, which is the same as last week, two cents higher than last month, and $1.14 higher than last year. In Bakersfield, the $4.35 average price is unchanged from last week, two cents higher than last month, and $1.18 higher than a year ago today.

“Hurricane Ida has had little impact on local gas prices since none of Southern California’s supply originates in the Gulf Coast,” said Auto Club spokesman Jeffrey Spring.  Also, local refineries have increased production and imports of gasoline products remains robust, giving the state ample inventory.”

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