San Diego gas prices continue to fall

SAN DIEGO (CNS) – The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego County dropped Tuesday to its lowest amount since May 14, 2009, decreasing eight-tenths of a cent to $2.49.

The average price has dropped 15 consecutive days, decreasing 16.9 cents, including 1 cent on Monday, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.

The average price is 10.2 cents less than one week ago, 26.4 cents lower than one month ago and $1.14 below what it was one year ago.

The dropping pump prices are the result of the fall of wholesale gasoline prices to their lowest amounts since December 2008, according to Jeffrey Spring, the corporate communications manager of the Automobile Club of Southern California.
