LOS AN­GE­LES (CNS) — The av­er­age price of a gal­lon of self­serve reg­u­lar gaso­line in Los An­ge­les County dropped four­tenths of a cent Satur­day to $3.296, one day af­ter de­creas­ing three­tenths of a cent.

The av­er­age price is six­tenths of a cent less than one week ago, 13.2 cents less than one month ago, and 6.9 cents lower than one year ago, ac­cord­ing to fig­ures from the AAA and Oil Price In­for­ma­tion Ser­vice.

The Or­ange County av­er­age price dropped a half­cent to­day to $3.256, af­ter drop­ping eight­tenths of a cent each of the pre­vi­ous two days. It is 1.4 cents less than one week ago, 12.3 cents less than one month ago and 7.9 cents lower than one year ago.

Higher prices are ex­pected with the shift to sum­mer blend gaso­line, ex­pected to be­gin next week, ac­cord­ing to Jef­frey Spring, the Au­to­mo­bile South­ern Cal­i­for­nia’s com­mu­ni­ca­tions man­ager.

“Last week, Oil Price In­for­ma­tion Ser­vice re­ported that the re­gion’s ma­jor gaso­line pipe­line will be­gin ship­ping ‘sum­mer blend’ gaso­line on or around Jan. 29,’’ Spring said.

“Once that blend ar­rives at sta­tions, it adds at least 12 cents a gal­lon to the cost of gaso­line.” Club of cor­po­rate
