The U.S. price of gasoline increased nearly 10 cents a gallon during the past three weeks, but remains well below year-ago prices.

That's according to the national Lundberg Survey of fuel prices released Sunday.

Analyst Trilby Lundberg says the average U.S. price of regular grade gasoline was $2.05 a gallon Friday, when the survey was completed.

That's up from $1.95 a gallon recorded on March 20, but down $1.27 from the price at this time last year.

The lowest price for gasoline in the U.S. was found in Newark, N.J. at $1.83 a gallon. The highest was in Anchorage at $2.40.

The lowest price in California was $2.30 a gallon in Stockton and the highest was $2.33 in San Diego.

The average price in Los Angeles was $2.32.
