Gas prices break record high for 2010

This morning, San Diego County gas prices reached a record all-time high for the year in San Diego with an average price of $3.165 a gallon, but we expect prices to fall this weekend from 2.5¢ to 7¢ by Monday morning.

Our four-day gougecast predicts some relief this weekend with fair-to-partly gougy conditions and with scattered price-cutting through the weekend.

UCAN advises motorists to delay buying fuel or, if they must buy fuel, to patronize dealers who are selling gas for less than $3 a gallon (there are quite a few out there now).

Diesel prices will likely stay level or possibly drop slightly by Monday. The new all-time high for regular in 2010 is only slightly higher than this year's former record high of $3.162 a gallon set on May 6, 2010.

Gas prices are still about $1.50 cheaper than the all-time record high of  $4.62 a gallon, set on May 16, 2008.
