The price charts with the lowest gasoline pump prices on this page come from which relies on consumer input.  We present these price charts as a service, however prices can change and you certainly don't want to drive miles out of your way to save a few pennies per gallon at the pump.  We cannot be responsible for errors or erroneous reports.

Below are price reports for the areas of Los Angeles, Orange County, Riverside and Ventura but in some cases you will find overlapping reports of low prices and low prices for one community can show up in the price chart for a different area.  Again I want to emphasize that you should use these charts and reports only as a guide to what you might find at local gas stations.

On this page we also have some tips about how to save gas when you drive.


Update March 17, 2016  It seems that many of the major gasoline retailers in Southern California have some sort of relationship with a gas saving club. Shell has a relationship with the supermarket chain Ralphs and it has its own Fuel Rewards Network; Chevron has a relationship with the supermarket chain Vons; and other retailers have their own credit cards which offer discounts at the pump. Sometimes, the discounts offered by these clubs are the Best Buy, but sometimes there is an independent gasoline retailer or a major discount brand such as ARCO which has a lower pump price without a club discount, so it is important that you shop and do some figuring.

Sometimes you have to wonder if the retailers such as Shell and Chevron artificially raise their prices knowing that customers will be using a supermarket or other club discount?

Some credit cards and debit card programs also offer rebates on gasoline purchases, so consider those, too.

Update October 14, 2012  Here are some tips from the Federal Trade Commission that may help you save gas when you drive -- and when you don't drive such as when your car idles in a parking lot.  Admit it, we've all done some gas-wasting things such as delay turning off the engine when we reach our destination, or not getting an oil change when our car is due for one, or not driving at a steady pace when we can on freeways.  Among the tips from the FTC are these:

Don't speed -- the faster you drive the more fuel you car burns.  Driving at 65 mph instead of 55 mph increases fuel consumption by 20-percent.  Driving at 75 mph instead of 65 mph increases consumption by another 25-percent.

Don't tailgate so you can avoid using your brake and maintain a constant speed.

Remove excess weight from the car, like golf clubs.  Using your trunk for a storage bin wastes gasoline.

Keep your tires properly inflated and keep your engine tuned.  Clean oil reduces friction in your engine and you get more miles per gallon.

Another tip: buy your gasoline when it is cool.  Gasoline expands and even though the tanks are in the ground, I've heard too many reports that indicate when the weather is hot you are getting slightly less fuel for your dollar.  In fact, some oil industry practices back this up as do some Congressional investigations.  Gasoline expands in the heat, and when it's hot you are getting less fuel for your dollar.  Maybe the difference is very, very tiny but drops add up.  Oh, and that means don't top off your tank when you do find a low-priced station.  The gas that doesn't go into your tank is money wasted.

Here on our new media website "Moneyman" Alan Mendelson who is the original Best Deals TV Show reporter on KCAL9 and consumer advocate, shows you the best deals on TV, and the best buys, bargains and where savvy shoppers go to save, and how to get the most for "your money" with the best of Los Angeles, Orange County, Ventura County, Riverside County and San Bernardino County.  Our Best Buys TV Show has the best TV deals and is the only regularly scheduled weekly best deals TV show in Southern California.  We show you the best buys and best deals on TV and more deals and bargains on and and watch for our Las Vegas TV show Vegas Best Buys.  Some of the content can come from paid advertising and from our advertiser paid TV infomercial programs.  The Best Buys TV Show is a paid infomercial program which may also include news and information which is not sponsored or paid for by advertisers. has the highest ranking among competitive sites in Southern California according to the independent website ranking companies and and our Best Buys TV Show is the most watched shopping and consumer information show in Southern California.
