The price of a gallon of self-serve regular in San Diego County dropped a fraction of a penny from Sunday night to Monday, to $3.802. That’s still two cents higher than last year, but considerably lower than the record high set last month of $4.52 per gallon.

Prices in San Francisco also dropped slightly, to $3.898 per gallon. Statewide, the average was $3.785 per gallon.

“We haven’t been paying prices this low since early August,” said Marie Montgomery, a spokeswoman for the Automobile Club of Southern California.

Gas Prices Down, Thanksgiving Road Trips Up and fuel is still too high priced to go anywhere. The highest Thanksgiving Day prices.
Big Oil and the huge price fixing at the fuel pump. Big Oil still producing fuel when the refinery is performing maintenance or an upgrade – in 'off line' mode. Big Oil and Big Gas continues to sell fuel and natural gas on the world market for higher prices, there will be NO price reduction for the cost of fuel or natural gas IN the US no matter how much is produced in the US.
The price at the pump needs to go down to $2/gallon, *$3, *$3.50/gallon or *$4.00 is Not the new low!
Why did the turkey cross the California road?
Whatever the size or shape of the vehicle, vehicle manufactures Produce and the population ‘Drives’ vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

Gas is still double what is reasonable. Gas should be under $2/gallon.

SW Washington Arco AM/PM varies quite a bit. Longview, Washington is about 50 miles north of Portland, Oregon. AM/PM stations are selling regular for about $3.25/gallon. I went to Vancouver, Washington today which is across the Columbia River from Portland and I saw AM/PM regular selling for $3.55/gallon.

Still question whether gas should be as expensive as it is, while the idiots in congress are of no help to review these prices.

I drove 5 freeway exits from my home yesterday and 6 blocks to a neighbors home to deliver something to them today so I haven't taken much advantage of the low down yet. Hope it stays that way a while though
