Gas prices dip below 2009 level

For the first time in 2010, local motorists are paying less for gas when compared to last year’s prices.

The average cost of a gallon of gas in San Francisco is now $3.14, which is 13 cents cheaper than last month and 10 cents cheaper from September 2009 costs. According to AAA spokesman Matt Skryja, uncertainty in the global economy has contributed to lower crude oil prices, which in turn have led to cheaper gas costs.

Despite the drop in prices, gas in San Francisco was still more expensive compared to national and state levels. The nationwide average for a gallon of gas is $2.72, and the state wide average is $3.02. California currently has the third-most expensive gas in the country.
