The average price of a gallon of regular gas in Los Angeles County fell for a fifth consecutive day.

In L.A. County, the average cost is now 2.3 cents less than what it was one week ago, according to the AAA and the Oil Price Information Service, reports City News Service.

This comes as great news for Southern California drivers heading into the summer season, when gas prices typically spike. However, the average cost is still 14.8 cents more than what it was one month ago, and 20.9 cents more than one year ago.
