Some gasoline stations in Fontana are now selling gas for under $3.50 per gallon, including this ARCO station on Sierra Avenue.

Gasoline prices are continuing to go down in the local area.

San Bernardino gas prices have fallen 5.5 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.78/g on June 10, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 567 stations.

Gas prices in San Bernardino are 21.7 cents per gallon lower than a month ago; however, prices still stand 12.9 cents per gallon higher than a year ago.

In Fontana, some stations are selling gas for less than $3.50 per gallon.

"Last week saw a feat most motorists probably thought they'd never see in June -- average gasoline prices declined in nearly every state across the country," said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. "The fall has come amidst a deep drop in oil prices set in to play on worries that tariffs could slow economic growth, reducing oil demand.

"The decline at the pump is likely to continue but may slow down in a few couple weeks as President Trump made a deal with Mexico over the weekend to avoid tariffs. With gasoline inventories also growing in most areas of the country, the transition to summer gasoline complete, motorists will continue to see prices moving lower as the summer driving season gets underway. We're likely to see more good news at the pump than bad for the foreseeable future."
