LA County Gas Prices Drop

LA County Gas Prices Drop
A 17-day streak of increases ended today when the average price of a gallon of self serve regular gasoline in Los Angeles County dropped one-tenth of a cent to $3.778.

The average price rose 17.2 cents during the streak to its highest amount since Oct. 24, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service. It is 7.6 cents more than one week ago and 13 cents higher than one month ago but 50.2 cents less than one year ago.

The rising prices are the result of the annual refinery maintenance season when supplies of winter blend gasoline drop as refineries start production of the more expensive summer blend, according to the Automobile Club of Southern California.
