Gasoline prices in Southern California continue dropping after a record high set in October.
The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline Friday is $4.09 in Los Angeles County after dropping 3 cents from Thursday to Friday. That is the 24th consecutive day prices have declined. The record high price of $4.70 was set in October.
The Automobile Club of Southern California said the average price has fallen 61 cents the past three weeks. Prices for a gallon of self-serve regular in Orange ($4.03), Riverside and San Bernardino counties ($4.02) – are slightly lower, by a few pennies, than the average in L.A. County.
But prices vary throughout Southern California: Some stations have higher prices, some are lower.
Jeffrey Spring with the Auto Club said there are a lot of stations with prices under $4 a gallon and he encouraged drivers to shop for the best deals.
