The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in Los Angeles County dropped two-tenths of a cent Monday to $3.571, after increasing slightly the previous four days.
The average price is a half-cent less than one week ago and 3.1 cents lower than one month ago, but 23 cents more than one year ago, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.
The Orange County average price remained the same at $3.522. It is six-tenths of a cent more than one week ago, 2.4 cents lower than one month ago, and 21.3 cents higher than one year ago.
“Southern California gasoline average prices continue to be the most expensive in the country, and recent declines in oil prices worldwide have not yet made much of an impact locally,” said Jeffrey Spring, the Automobile Club of Southern California’s corporate communications manager.
