The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in Los Angeles County dropped Sunday for the 33rd consecutive day, decreasing nine-tenths of a cent to $3.861, its lowest amount since April 6.
The average price has decreased 25.9 cents during the streak, including 1.1 cents on Saturday, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service. It is 7.4 cents less than one week ago and 24.1 cents lower than one month ago, but 11.3 cents higher than one year ago.
The Orange County average price dropped for the 32nd time in the past 33 days, decreasing six-tenths of a cent to $3.827, also its lowest amount since April 6. It has decreased 26.9 cents over the past 33 days, including 1.7 cents on Saturday.

“Oil prices are dropping due to a surge in stockpiles and worries that worldwide demand will decline because of the trade dispute between the U.S. and China, and that is helping to drive down fuel prices around the country,” said Jeffrey Spring, the Automobile Club of Southern California’s corporate communications manager.
