Survey: LA Gas Prices Expected To Spike This Week As National Average Drops

CBS Los Angeles

CAMARILLO (AP) — The average price of gasoline has dropped 2 cents over the past two weeks to $2.83 a gallon.

Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg said Sunday that the decline comes amid lower crude oil prices.

The average national price for midgrade gas was $3.05, with premium going for $3.22.

The cheapest price recorded in the continental United States was $2.42 a gallon in Jackson, Mississippi.

The highest price was $3.66 a gallon in Los Angeles. Prices in California rose about 9 cents in the past 2 weeks and a continuing spike is expected this week.

Analysts say a shortage in oil and other components used in refining California’s unique blend of less-polluting gas will push prices past $4 a gallon in some areas of the state before they ease again.
