LOS ANGELES (CNS) - The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in Los Angeles County dropped one-tenth of a cent today to $3.199, one day after remaining unchanged.
The average price is two-tenths of a cent less than one week ago, 2.8 cents lower than one month ago and $1.056 cheaper than one year ago, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service. It has decreased 41.6 cents since the start of the year.
The Orange County average price dropped four-tenths of a cent to $3.162, one day after rising one-tenth of a cent. It is a half-cent less than one week ago, 4 cents lower than one month ago and $1.053 cheaper than one year ago. It has decreased 38.3 cents since the start of the year.
“At about this time last year, an explosion that damaged the Torrance refinery caused prices to skyrocket temporarily over $4 a gallon, but today supplies are stable and gas prices are hardly moving,'' said Jeffrey Spring, the Automobile Club of Southern California's corporate communications manager.
“Because of the pandemic this year, the average gas price for the first three quarters of this year in Southern California is about 50 cents lower than for the first three quarters of 2019.''
