The average price of regular self-serve unleaded gasoline in California slipped to $1.52 per gallon last week, down a little more than a penny from the week before.

The national average retail price for unleaded also eased slightly to $1.23 a gallon after hitting a 23-month high last week of $1.24, the weekly survey of 800 gas stations found.
