Oil Markets, Strong Production Lead U.S. Gas Prices Lower
Average National Price of Gallon of Gas Dropped 4 cents in Last 2 Weeks
The average national price of a regular gallon of gasoline has dropped 4 cents in the last two weeks to $2.50.
Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg said Sunday that falling oil prices and strong production at U.S. refineries led to lower numbers at the pump.
The drop during the two-week period ending Friday comes despite labor strikes at some refineries.
Los Angeles had the most expensive gas among cities surveyed in the Lower 48 states at $3.29. Charleston, South Carolina, had the cheapest at $2.11.
The average national price for midgrade gas was $2.71 and $2.87 for premium.
Diesel stands at $2.97, down 5 cents.
In Minnesota the average price of gas is $2.32 and it’s $2.44 in Wisconsin.
