The trend of falling gas prices in Southern California appears to have come to an end.

According to the Lundberg Survey, prices have stopped falling because crude oil prices haven't dropped in several weeks.

Drivers in the Los Angeles and Long Beach area are currently paying an average of $3.73 a gallon, which is up 2 cents since last week.

In Orange County, the price is now $3.70 a gallon, up 4 cents. Inland Empire drivers are paying $3.69, which is up a penny, and in Ventura, the average price is $3.72, up 2 cents since last week.
