Gas Prices Decline; Lowest Local Prices

Shop around for the lowest prices, says AAA, but don't drive too far for a good deal. Friday's decline in gas prices is the 22nd in the past 23 days.

The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline fell in Los Angeles County on Friday for the 18th consecutive day, dropping 1 cent to $4.258, its lowest amount since Feb. 24.

As of Friday night, the lowest gas price in the Westwood-Century City area was $4.25 at .

"A little more price competition appears to be happening among gas stations, which is good news for drivers," said Jeffrey Spring of the Automobile Club of Southern California. "Drivers can help encourage further price reductions by shopping around for the best prices, as long as they're not driving far out of their way." 

The further you drive to get a good deal on gas, the more gas you'll burn in the process. 

The average price is 4.7 cents less than a week ago and 13.8 cents lower than one month ago but 6.5 cents more than one year ago, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service. Friday's decline was the 22nd in the past 23 days.   

The average price has decreased 12.8 cents over the past 23 days, including eight-tenths of a cent on Thursday.
