Auto Club: SoCal Gas Prices Drop For Ninth Straight Week


Southern California gas prices dropped for the ninth straight week with the Independence Day holiday just two weeks away, according to the Auto Club’s Weekend Gas Watch.

The average price of self-serve regular gasoline in the Los Angeles-Long Beach area is $4.79 per gallon, which is four cents less than last week and 14 cents less than last year. In San Diego, the average price is $4.82, which is three cents lower than last week and eight cents lower than this time last year.

On the Central Coast, the average price is $4.94, which is three cents lower than last week and the same price as last year. In Riverside, the average per-gallon price is $4.70, which is five cents lower than last week and 11 cents lower than a year ago. In Bakersfield, the $4.90 average price is six cents less than last week and two cents higher than a year ago today.
