SD gas prices down 4.2 cents from last week

The average price for a gallon of regular gasoline fell for the third consecutive week, although the pace of the decline has slowed, according to the Automobile Club of Southern California's Weekend Gas Watch. The retail state average is $4.136 a gallon for regular as of Thursday, 3.3 cents less than last week.

In San Diego, the average price is $4.131, which is 4.2 cents below last week, 14.3 cents lower than last month, and 8 cents higher than last year.

“Going into the Memorial Day weekend, travelers will be paying less than they would have a month ago, but about 10-14 cents more than last year,” said Auto Club spokesman Jeffrey Spring. “An increase in wholesale prices earlier this week may have slowed the decrease in retail prices, but it doesn’t seem to have an impact on holiday travel, which is expected to increase by 1.8 percent compared to 2013.”

The average price of self-serve regular gasoline in the Los Angeles-Long Beach area is $4.16.5 per gallon, which is 3.5 cents less last week, 6.2 cents lower than last month, and 10 cents higher than last year.

On the Central Coast, the average price is $4.172, down 4.9 cents from last week, 12.1cents lower than a month ago, and 5 cents more than last year. In the Inland Empire, the average per-gallon price is $4.131, down 4 cents from last week, 13.7 cents less than last month, and 10 cents more than last year.
