Gasoline Rises to $3.28 a Gallon, Lundberg Reports

Chip Chipman/Bloomberg News

Gasoline’s national average price increased 2.71 cents in the past two weeks to $3.28 a gallon, according to the latest Lundberg Survey of filling stations.

The price is about 9.61 cents below the same period last year, analyst Trilby Lundberg said in her latest survey, which covered the two-week period ended Dec. 6.

Gasoline futures on the New York Mercantile Exchange rose 0.08 cents, to $2.73 a gallon, in the two weeks ended Dec. 6.

Los Angeles had the highest price among areas surveyed by Lundberg, at $3.61 a gallon, while Tulsa, Okla., had the lowest at $2.84.

“This is another modest rise,” Lundberg told Bloomberg News. Another slight jump in the next two weeks is expected as U.S. crude has rallied in that time, she said.

The Department of Energy will release its weekly survey of diesel and gasoline pump prices in the afternoon on Dec. 9 in Washington.
