(Victor Valley)– The average price for regular gasoline in most of Southern California fell below $3 per gallon as demand for fuel continues to drop with people staying at home, according to the Automobile Club of Southern California’s Weekend Gas Watch. Today’s retail statewide average is $2.92 a gallon for regular unleaded, which is nine cents less than last week.

The average price of self-serve regular gasoline in the Los Angeles-Long Beach area is $2.99 per gallon, which is nine cents lower than last week, 52 cents lower than a month ago, and 92 cents lower than last year. In San Diego, the average price is $2.97, which is eight cents lower than last Thursday, 54 cents less than last month, and 90 cents lower than last year. On the Central Coast, the average price is $3.08, which is 11 cents lower than last week, 45 cents lower than last month, and 81 cents lower than last year. In Riverside, the average per-gallon price is $2.85, which is nine cents lower than last week, 58 cents lower than last month, and 98 cents lower than last year. In San Bernardino, the $2.92 average price is nine cents less than last week, 55 cents lower than last month, and 92 cents lower than a year ago today.

“Most regions last saw prices this low in 2017,” said Auto Club spokesman Jeffrey Spring. “Although the rate of declining prices is slowing, California reformulated gasoline production continues to drop, and inventories continue to increase, so we expect to see retail prices continue to move lower.”

The Weekend Gas Watch monitors the average price of gasoline. As of 9 a.m. on April 9, averages are:
