The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego County decreased Friday for the 25th consecutive day, falling 3.6 cents to $4.032, one day after dropping 3.3 cents.
The average price has dropped 69.3 cents over the past 25 days after rising 54.7 cents over the previous six days to a record high of $4.725, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.
The average price is 23.4 cents less than one week ago and 14.6 cents lower than one month ago but 18.3 cents higher than one year ago.
Despite the dropping prices, the average price is at a record high for early November.
“We’re encouraging drivers to continue to aggressively shop for the lowest possible gas prices,” said Jeffrey Spring of the Automobile Club of Southern California. “In most local areas, drivers should be able to find stations charging less than $4 a gallon.”
Many gas stations in Poway have dropped their prices below $4 a gallon.
