The Los Angeles/Long Beach average price of regular gas today is 2.069, 4-cents lower than yesterday and over a dollar less than a month ago. “Gas prices have never come down by more than a dollar in a one-month period, so this should bring good cheer to travelers this holiday weekend,” said Auto Club spokesperson Jeffrey Spring in a statement. “The last time Thanksgiving travelers paid less than this for gas was in 2003, when Los Angeles gas prices averaged $1.73.” Statewide, gas is even cheaper at $2.031.
