The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in Riverside County dropped three-tenths of a cent Friday to $4.60, one day after remaining unchanged.

The average price has dropped three of the last four days, decreasing 1 cent, to its lowest amount since Nov. 16, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service. It has dropped 4.1 cents since Nov. 27 when it rose to its highest amount since Oct. 13, 2012 at $4.641.

The average price is 1.1 cents less than one week ago and 3 cents lower than one month ago but $1.463 higher than one year ago.

“While dropping slowly, it seems average gas prices above $4.50 per gallon will be with us until after the new year,” said Jeffrey Spring, the corporate communications manager of the Automobile Club of Southern California.

“There are only two states in the country with an average gas price for regular above $4 a gallon. And the other state, Hawaii, has an average today that is 33 cents per gallon below our state.”
