SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- San Diego gas prices could increase by at least 12 cents per gallon with the arrival of the “summer blend” in the coming week, according to City News Service.

The average price per gallon fell 1.6 cents from last week and is down more than 12 cents when compared to last month.

Prices are also down 9.4 cents when compared to this time last year, AAA reports.

The recent drop in prices is expected to vanish as soon as the summer blend gets distributed.

"Last week, Oil Price Information Service reported that the region's major gasoline pipeline will begin shipping `summer blend' gasoline on or around Jan. 29," said Jeffrey Spring, the Automobile Club of Southern California’s corporate communications manager.

"Once that blend arrives at stations, it adds at least 12 cents a gallon to the cost of gasoline."
