SLO County gas prices under $5 a gallon, find the lowest prices

December 18, 2022


The average price for a gallon of gas in San Luis Obispo County fell 15 cents during the past week to $4,91, as demand decreases as inclement weather leads to fewer cars on the road and domestic gasoline stocks grow, according to figures from AAA.

“Increasing supply and lower gasoline demand are pushing pump prices lower,” according to AAA. “As demand remains low and stocks grow, drivers will likely continue to see pump prices decrease through next week.”

SLO County currently has the second highest price for gas in the state. Listing the highest average price, Mono County’s price for a gallon of regular gasoline this week is $5.62.

The average price of gas in California fell 17 cents during the past week to $4.38 a gallon.

I realize that the rise and fall of prices is newsworthy, but I have some issues with the way that the national media portrays these slight dips in the cost of gas as a huge win, when we definitely were paying a lot less two years ago. So if a bully punches me in the face five times on Monday, but only punches me in the face four times on Tuesday, am I supposed to be happy about a 20% reduction in punches to the face?

It’s pretty sad when we are supposed to celebrate gas being under $5 per gallon when only a few years ago it was under $4.

Who’s celebrating?
