Gas Prices Drop Average $0.07 In 2 Weeks
The average price for a gallon of regular U.S. gasoline slipped almost 7 cents over the past two weeks, chasing a drop in crude oil prices, according to a nationwide survey published Sunday.
A gallon of regular now costs $3.85 on average, the Lundberg Survey found. In the past month, average prices have fallen more than 12 cents.That's good news for consumers, but it comes from a negative place. The survey tabulates prices every two weeks at thousands of gas stations nationwide. The average price nationally one year ago was just shy of $4 -- some 15 cents under the current average, Lundberg said. The city with the lowest average price per gallon was Tulsa, Oklahoma, at $3.40. The city with the highest average price was Chicago at $4.32.
