Gasoline prices at a Newport Beach station Friday, March 8, 2013. Gas prices are dropping in the past week in Southern California. The Auto Club said the average price for a gallon of self-serve regular statewide is $4.20 a gallon, $4.28 in L.A. County.

After steadily increasing the past month, Southern California gasoline prices are now dropping.

The average price for a gallon of self-serve regular in Los Angeles is $4.28 and the state average is $4.20, according to the Automobile Club of Southern California.

The auto club said prices have dropped between three and five-cents in the last week. 

In Riverside and San Bernardino counties, the average price is $4.24. The price in Orange and Ventura counties is $4.27.
 
“Most California refineries have concluded their scheduled maintenance in advance of selling summer gasoline without major incidents, and one result is that wholesale gasoline prices in Los Angeles have fallen more than 40 cents per gallon since peaking on February 15,” said Jeffrey Spring with the Auto Club. “While local prices are still significantly above $4 per gallon, it is nice to see them start to drop before spring break begins.”
