CAMARILLO, Calif. (AP) — A national survey reveals the average price of regular gasoline has plunged another 12 cents a gallon over the past two weeks, to $2.72.
Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg said Sunday that the decline continues a nationwide trend.
Lundberg says lower crude oil prices are continuing to drive prices down, along with an abundant oil supply and the rising value of the U.S. dollar.
The highest-priced gas in the Lower 48 states was found in San Francisco at $3.04 a gallon. The lowest was in Albuquerque at $2.38 a gallon.
California’s lowest average was in Sacramento, $2.80 a gallon.
The average price for midgrade gas in the U.S. is $2.96. For premium it’s $3.12.
