San Diego gas prices increase

SAN DIEGO (CNS and KGTV) - The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego County dropped today for the 25th consecutive day, falling a half-cent to $3.824, its lowest amount since Sept. 25.

The average price has dropped 23.4 cents during the streak, including 1 cent on Saturday, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.

It is 6.8 cents less than one week ago and 22.5 cents less than one month ago, but 29.1 cents more than one year ago.

The relief comes shortly after gas prices throughout the entire state reached nearly $5 per gallon.

Prices at the pump remained high for nearly a month while slowly falling.

AAA says the sharp increase was due to Los Angeles-area refineries slowing or halting production due to maintenance issues.
