SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The average price of a gallon of regular self-service gasoline in San Diego County fell 1.9 cents on Friday for the second straight day, the biggest drop since April 16, 2020.
The average price fell by 4.8 cents in the last three days to $ 5.97 after a series of 35-day increases totaling $ 1,276, according to data from the Oil Price Information Service and AAA. It’s 2.9 cents less than a week ago, but $ 1,109 more than a month ago and $ 2,015 higher than a year ago.
“Wholesale gasoline prices in Los Angeles have fallen sharply since Friday after news broke that imported gasoline and gasoline components had arrived to refill local supplies,” said Doug Shupe, corporate communications director at the Automobile Club of Southern California.
“However, the Torrance refinery, which ran into problems earlier this month, reported a new explosion (Thursday) in the morning, indicating that it may close again for repairs. It is not yet clear how important this is or whether it will affect gas prices. ”
