It’s not a bargain, but gas prices are in sustained free fall
SOUTHLAND – (INT) – Southern California gas prices continue sliding as summer vacationers get ready to hit the road.
Pump prices are now within a dime of what drivers were paying this time last year in most areas, according to the Automobile Club of Southern California (ACSC).
The retail statewide average is $3.85 a gallon for 87 octane regular.
In Riverside, the average per-gallon price is 25 cents lower than last month. In San Bernardino, the $3.80 average price is 24 cents lower than last month, but nine cents higher than a year ago today.
The ACSC noted that California refineries are experiencing the highest productivity since last November so “We expect pump prices to continue dropping.”
