Neighboring areas and their current gas prices include: Stockton - $4.60/gallon, unchanged from last week; Oakland - $4.76/gallon, up 2.8 cents from $4.73; and San Jose - $4.75/gallon, unchanged from last week.

“As of Sunday evening, the national average price of gasoline posted its first weekly decline in months. As the price of oil continues to struggle, COVID cases flare up and anxiety over demand starts rising, motorists are likely to see the declines continuing into this week,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. “While it’s not known how long market conditions will continue to push gas prices down, it appears that the fall should last through Thanksgiving, just in time for millions of Americans to prepare to hit the road for the holiday.”
