Survey: US Gas Prices Dip 13 Cents In Past 2 Weeks

A survey says the average U.S. price of a gallon of gasoline has dropped 13 cents over the past two weeks.

The Lundberg Survey of fuel prices released Sunday puts the price of a gallon of regular at $3.42, down 13 cents from two weeks earlier and down 25 cents in the past month.

Costs have seen similar drops in midgrade, now at an average of $3.58 a gallon, and premium at $3.70.

Diesel fell seven cents to $3.85 a gallon.

Of the cities surveyed, Albuquerque, N.M., had the nation's lowest average price for gas at $3.07, and perennial price leader San Francisco had the highest at $3.81.

In California, the lowest average price was $3.71 in Fresno. The average statewide was $3.77, down 11 cents in the two-week span.

    Gas hasn't dropped even a penny here on Hatteras Island. It's still $3.85 for a gallon of regular.

    Chronic high gas prices have been disasterous for America due to the Obama energy policy.

    G W Bush last US gas price the day he left the White House was $1.61 per gallon, Goggle US gas charts. Obama's gas price is your Obama tax on your family

    It takes 2 weeks or more to go down 13 cents but on takes one night for it to go up 15 cents. Makes no sense to me.
