Gas Prices Fall Just Before $4 Mark

Prices at the pump fall for the eight consecutive day.

Just as gas prices seemed headed toward the $4 mark, Los Angeles County saw a slight drop in the average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline.

Prices fell Monday for the eighth consecutive day to three-tenths of a cent at $3.948.

According to the Automobile Club of Southern California, the average price is 1.8 cents less than a week ago, but 23.8 cents more than a month ago. The average price is still 97.4 cents higher than prices at this time a year ago.

For Orange County, the average price fell for the seventh consecutive day, falling one-tenth of a cent to $3.92. That is 2.1 cents less than prices a week ago, but still 22.7 cents more than a month ago.

“A year ago at this time, local drivers were paying nearly a dollar less a gallon, or about $15 less per tank,” said Auto Club spokesperson Jeffrey Spring in a press statement. “Even though we never reached the record $4.50-plus prices of 2008, drivers have paid the same amount on average so far this year as they did between Jan. 1 and Sept. 15 of 2008. This year’s average price for the Los Angeles area so far is $3.84.”
