Gas Prices Increase with Higher Crude Oil Costs, Find Cheapest Near You
U.S. Gasoline prices crept up by about 2 cents per gallon over the past two weeks, but higher crude oil prices are likely to mean more small increases on the horizon, the latest Lundberg Survey concluded recently.
Friday's national average was $3.44 for a gallon of regular gasoline. That's up from $3.42 in the previous survey, conducted Jan. 11, but down about a nickel from this time a year ago.
The Lundberg Survey canvasses about 2,500 U.S. filling stations to calculate its national average. The latest survey found the highest average fuel prices in Los Angeles, at $3.71 per gallon; the cheapest were in Albuquerque, NM, at $2.88.
