Drops in gasoline and natural gas prices accounted for almost the entire price decline. Also, in 2008, personal income adjusted for inflation declined 0.04%, the first decrease since 1993. Personal income for the San Diego metro area (the county) is 16th in the nation. On a per capita basis, however, San Diego ranks 28th, according to Cunningham.
