CAMARILLO, Calif. (AP) — The average price of a gallon of regular-grade gasoline rose 2 cents nationally during the past two weeks, to $2.33.
Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg said Sunday that the slight rise was due to small increases in crude oil and wholesale gas prices.
Lundberg says she expects modest increases in the near-term.
The national average is up 56 cents per gallon over the price a year ago.
