According to the Lundberg Survey, the average price of regular-grade gasoline is up six cents a gallon over the past two weeks to $2.50.

Despite these recent spikes, gas is still nine cents lower than what it was a year ago.

The highest average price in the nation is $3.29 a gallon in the San Francisco Bay area.

The lowest price is $2.13 in St. Louis Missouri; however, experts say gas price increases are likely to continue.

Industry analysts say it would take a notable and sustained drop in oil prices to cause a gasoline price decline at this point.
