Gas prices drop for the 31st day in a row

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Gas prices have continued to drop for the 31st consecutive day, decreasing four-tenths of a cent to $3.178.

Prices rose $1.076 during the 35-streak of increases, but have dropped 32.3 cents for the past 32 days.

The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline is 6 cents less that it was last week, 31.7 cents lower than it was a month ago and 90.2 cents lower than it was a year ago.

“Supply issues in Southern California have stabilized, but wholesale prices have jumped up a bit, most likely in anticipation of increased demand during spring and summer. That could mean gas station prices don’t have too much further to fall in coming weeks,” said Marie Montgomery of the Automobile Club of Southern California.
