The Lundberg Survey said Tuesday that the number of service stations in Southern California declined 2.9% in 1989, not 5.33% as it said earlier this month in a preliminary report that contained computational errors. According to the results of a September census--first reported in The Times last week--the number of service stations in a four-county area declined to 4,614 in 1989 from 4,751 in June, 1988. Lundberg had erroneously reported that the number had fallen to 4,972 from 5,262.

Motorists are finding fewer service stations in Southern California than they did a year ago, but the ones remaining are bigger and more likely to be open all night. According to the results of a recent census by the Lundberg Survey, the number of stations in a four-county area fell 5.3% to 4,972 this year from 5,252 in 1988. That is far below the 8,961 service stations 15 years ago, reported Lundberg, a North Hollywood-based gasoline marketing research firm.
