The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in Riverside County dropped one-tenth of a cent Saturday to $4.315.

The average price is one-tenth of a cent less than one week ago, 1.1 cents higher than one month ago and $1.14 greater than one year ago, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.

“Hurricane Ida has had little impact on local gas prices since none of Southern California’s supply originates in the Gulf Coast,” said Jeffrey Spring, the Automobile Club of Southern California’s corporate communications manager.

“Also, local refineries have increased production and imports of gasoline products remains robust, giving the state ample inventory.”
