“Despite the two oil tanker fires in the Middle East, oil prices are now more than 20 percent lower than they were a year ago at this time and California refineries are experiencing the highest productivity since November 2018, so we expect pump prices to continue dropping,” said Jeffrey Spring, the Automobile Club of Southern California’s corporate communications manager.
