San Diego County gas prices drop for 21st straight day –

SAN DIEGO (CNS) – The average price of a gallon of self-service regular gasoline in San Diego County fell Wednesday for the 21st straight day, dropping 1.1 cents to $6.189.

The average price has fallen 18.4 cents over the past 21 days, including 1.1 cents on Tuesday, according to data from AAA and the Oil Price Information Service. The streak of declines follows a streak of 19 gains in 20 days, totaling 35.5 cents.

The average price is 7.5 cents less than a week ago and 7.2 cents lower than a month ago, but $1.907 more than a year ago.

The drop in prices continues despite a 2.8-cent-per-gallon gas tax hike that took effect Friday.

The national average price fell for the 22nd straight day after an 18-day streak of gains, falling 2.1 cents to $4.779. It has fallen 23.7 cents over the past 22 days, including seven-tenths of a minute on Tuesday, after rising 41.5 cents during the 18-day rally.

The national average is 8.9 cents less than a week ago and 8.6 cents less than a month ago, but $1.645 more than a year ago.
