Just before the long Easter holiday weekend, gas prices dipped in Burbank. Today I bought $20 worth of regular gas at the Arco station at Lake Street and Alameda Avenue in B-town. The price: $3.99 a gallon. Okay, it’s not the serious tumble we would like — but hopefully, this is the beginning of a major drop in gas prices.

Today, the triple-A Daily Fuel Gauge Report is showing the average price for regular in our area, the Los Angeles-Long Beach region, is $4.1 a gallon. This is welcome news for folks planning to hit the roads and highways during the holiday weekend.

    Fronnie,

    Crazy, isn’t it? In San Jose, I practically did a dance when the neighborhood Valero dropped Regular to $3.81!

    Safeway (Von’s down there?) has also seduced me with their Chevron partnership. With my $0.20 per gallon discount, I filled my van for $3.79 a gallon!

    Any idea what the price of gas was when we were at Sequoia?

    Hope you are well,

    Sue

    Sue,
    Indeed, it is crazy. I do miss the good old days of really cheap gas. Back when we were in high school I’m sure gas was less than a dollar a gallon — probably just a few cents.

    Thanks for the data on gas prices in San Jose. Keep us posted on that. Folks down here travel to the Bay Area and it’s good to know what’s going on up there.

    Fronnie,

    Will definitely keep you posted!

    It’s almost like a treasure hunt…trying to find the lowest price or the best discount combo.
