Auto Club: Gas Prices Continue Dropping Rapidly

CA GAS WATCH

Southern California drivers are getting more price breaks at the gas pump for a second straight week, according to the Auto Club’s Weekend Gas Watch. The average price for self-serve regular gasoline in California is $4.53, which is nine cents lower than a week ago. The average national price is $3.09, which is one cent higher than a week ago.

The average price of self-serve regular gasoline in the Los Angeles-Long Beach area is $4.58 per gallon, which is nine cents lower than last week, 15 cents lower than last month, and seven cents higher than last year. In San Diego, the average price is $4.61, which is nine cents less than last week, 15 cents lower than last month, and six cents more than this time last year.

On the Central Coast, the average price is $4.62, which is six cents lower than last week, ten cents lower than last month, and 14 cents more than last year. In Riverside, the average per-gallon price is $4.41, which is ten cents lower than last week, 16 cents lower than last month, and three cents higher than a year ago. In Bakersfield, the $4.63 average price is eight cents lower than last week, 16 cents lower than last month, and 16 cents higher than a year ago today.

“In most areas, Southern California drivers should be able to find gas stations charging near or even below $4 a gallon today,” said Auto Club Spokesperson Doug Shupe. “Oil Price Information Service reports that the Kinder Morgan pipeline servicing Southern California will begin transitioning to supplying the more expensive ‘summer blend’ gasoline on Feb. 1, but pump prices could continue declining at least until that point.”

The Weekend Gas Watch monitors the average price of gasoline. As of 9 a.m. on Jan. 18, averages are:
