June 23, 2008



LOS ANGELES --- Southern California gas prices continued to chart new territory last week and were over one dollar higher than their 2007 record levels, according to the Automobile Club of Southern California’s Weekend Gas Watch.

The average price of self-serve regular gasoline in the Los Angeles-Long Beach area Friday was $4.626 per gallon, which is 8.3 cents more than the previous week, 70 cents higher than last month, and $1.41 above last year.

In San Diego, the price was $4.630, which is 6.2 cents higher than the previous week’s price, 67 cents above last month, and $1.44 higher than last year. On the Central Coast, the average price was $4.703, up 9.2 cents from the previous week, 64 cents above last month, and $1.28 more than last year. In the Inland Empire, the average per gallon price was $4.612, 7.9 cents over the previous week, up 68 cents from last month, and $1.44 higher than last year.

"More than 30 states now have gas price averages topping $4 a gallon," said Auto Club spokesperson Jeffrey Spring. "Driving smoothly and evenly, bundling your trips to cut down on miles driven, and maintaining your vehicle and tire pressure are crucial to helping you save as much as possible on fuel costs."
