Gas prices are continuing to fall. The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular in L.A. County is now down to $3.43. In Orange County, it's $3.38 a gallon on average, and it's $3.34 in Riverside County.

Those prices are the lowest they've been in almost a year.

Analysts say worldwide demand for gas and oil is dropping due to the coronavirus.
