Gas prices start dropping

Southern California gas prices have started dropping again in the last week after hovering at high levels around the Memorial Day holiday, according to the Automobile Club of Southern California's Weekend Gas Watch.

The retail state average is $4.100 a gallon for regular as of Thursday, 2.4 cents less than last week.

The average price of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego is $4.093, which is 3.1 cents less than last week, 11 cents lower than last month, and 13 cents higher than last year.

In the Los Angeles-Long Beach area, the average price is $4.132 per gallon, which is 2.7 cents less than last week, 9.6 cents lower than last month, and 14 cents higher than last year. On the Central Coast, the average price is $4.138, down 3 cents from last week, 10 cents lower than a month ago, and 8 cents more than last year. In the Inland Empire, the average per-gallon price is $4.093, down 1.8 cents from last week, 11 cents less than last month, and 13 cents more than last year.

"Continued wholesale drops have brought some relief at the pump for drivers," said Auto Club spokesman Jeffrey Spring. "While gas in Southern California is near or at peak demand, at the moment there are no issues we've heard of at local refineries to disrupt supply."
