CAMARILLO (AP) — Over the past two weeks, the average U.S. gasoline price rose 6 cents to $3.31 per gallon.
This is $1.07 more than it was a year ago.
Trilby Lundberg from the Lundberg Survey, an industry analyst, said that Sunday’s rise is due to the rising cost of crude oils and the increase in demand for oil in Europe. There, refineries are switching from oil-based fuels to burning gas.
The average regular-grade gasoline price in the United States is $4.55 per gallon. Houston is the lowest at $2.77 a gallon.
The survey found that diesel prices rose 11 cents to $3.45 per gallon.
