LOS ANGELES (CNS) - The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in Los Angeles County remained the same today at $3.703, one day after a 14-day streak of falling prices ended when the average price rose two-tenths of a cent.
The average price is 2.4 cents less than one week ago and 4.1 cents lower than one month ago, but 6.4 cents more than one year ago, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.
The Orange County average price rose one-tenth of a cent to $3.674. It is 1.7 cents less than one week ago and 2.8 cents lower than one month ago, but 8.8 cents higher than one year ago.
“Gas prices are still about 45 cents higher than they were at their lowest point of 2019 in January, but they are heading downward slowly because oil prices are lower than a month ago and local refineries have plenty of fuel inventory,” said Jeffrey Spring, the Automobile Club of Southern California's corporate communications manager.
