Average US Price Of Gas Jumps 2 Pennies Per Gallon To $2.33

CHICAGO (AP)-- The average U.S. price of regular-grade gasoline has jumped 2 cents a gallon (3.8 liters) over the past two weeks to $2.33.

Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg of the Lundberg Survey says Sunday that the rise comes after a decline of 64 cents per gallon over the previous 14 weeks.

Lundberg says the price reversal is a result of rising crude oil costs.

The highest average price in the nation is $3.40 a gallon in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The lowest average is $1.89 in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

The average price of diesel fell 2 cents over the past three weeks, to $3.01.
