Average US price of gas up 14 cents a gallon to $2.64

(AP/WCBD) — The average U.S. price of regular-grade gasoline jumped 14 cents a gallon over the past two weeks to $2.64.

Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg of the Lundberg Survey says Sunday that gas prices will likely continue to rise as crude oil costs remain high.

The price at the pump has climbed 46 cents since Nov. 20.

The highest average price in the nation is $3.57 a gallon in the San Francisco Bay Area. The lowest average is $2.20 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

The average price of diesel went up 10 cents over the same period to $2.85.

Some states, like South Carolina, have seen an increase of over 10 cents a gallon since last week.

Experts like Patrick De Haan with Gas Buddy say it won’t likely end any time soon.

“Motorists are fueling at the pump. Another dose of increases that we expect over the next couple of weeks will increase to 10 to 20 cents a gallon,” he says.
