Gas Prices Up Nearly A Dime
CAMARILLO, Calif. (AP/KMOX)- Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg says the average U.S. price of gasoline is up 8 cents a gallon over the past three weeks.
According to the Lundberg Survey released Sunday, the average for a gallon of regular gas is now $3.35. Midgrade averages $3.54, and premium is $3.68.
Of cities surveyed in the Lower 48 states, the lowest price, $2.97 a gallon, was in Albuquerque, N.M.
Long Island, N.Y., had the highest, at $3.67.
According to the website Saint Louis Gas Prices.com, the average price in St. Louis was $3.17 on Sunday.
A week ago it was $3.05.
Trilby Lundberg says gas prices are going up, due to corrections made by refiners and retailers who’d been keeping margins too low.
