“Local pump prices have dropped fairly steadily since just after the July Fourth holiday,” Marie Montgomery of the Automobile Club of Southern California said. “However, without more price reductions at the wholesale level, it’s uncertain how much longer we can expect to see gas stations reducing their prices.”
