The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in Los Angeles County was unchanged Friday for the second consecutive day, remaining at $3.156.
The average price is unchanged from one week ago, 3.5 cents less than one month ago and 90.7 cents lower than one year ago, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service. It has decreased 45.9 cents since the start of the year.
The average price recorded its largest increase since July 24 on Wednesday, seven-tenths of a cent.
The Orange County average price rose one-tenth of a cent to $3.122, one day after increasing two-tenths of a cent. It is four-tenths of a cent more than one week ago but 3.6 cents less than one month ago and 88.9 cents lower than one year ago.
The Orange County average price has decreased 42.3 cents since the start of the year.
“Some of the low-price leaders among local gas stations have dropped their prices over the past week, but most pump prices are not budging right now,” said Jeffrey Spring, the Automobile Club of Southern California’s corporate communications manager.
“We would normally see prices start to drop toward the end of the year and that still may happen.”
