Average U.S. gasoline price drops 32 cents to $4.54 a gallon


CAMARILLO, Calif. (AP) — The average U.S. price for regular gasoline has fallen 32 cents over the past two weeks to $4.54 a gallon.

Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg of the Lundberg Survey said Sunday the continued decline comes as crude oil prices also fall.

“Further declines at the pump are likely as declines in wholesale gasoline prices continue to trickle down to the street level,” Lundberg said in a statement.

The average pump price is down 55 cents over the past six weeks, but is $1.32 higher than it was a year ago.

Nationally, the highest average price for regular gas was in Los Angeles at $5.65 per gallon. The lowest average was in Baton Rouge, Louisiana at $3.90 per gallon.

According to the survey, the average diesel price fell 22 cents over two weeks to $5.55 a gallon.
