San Diego Co. gas prices drop for eighth consecutive day

Average price for gallon of regular gas now $4.62


The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego County dropped 1.8 cents Tuesday to $4.622, the eighth consecutive decline following a six-day streak of increases.

The average price has dropped 10.3 cents over the past eight days, including 1 cents on Monday, after rising 54.7 cents over the previous six days to a record high of $4.725, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.

The average price is 10 cents less than one week ago, but 48.7 cents more than one month ago and 75.6 cents higher than one year ago.

"Gas prices are definitely not coming down with the same ferocity that they went up," Marie Montgomery Nordhues of the Automobile Club of Southern California told City News Service. Some significant declines are expected and we don't know why they haven't happened yet."
