CAMARILLO, California — The average price of gasoline has dropped a penny over the past two weeks to $2.82 a gallon.
Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg said Sunday that the current average sits 76 cents below the year-ago price.
The cheapest price recorded in the continental United States was $2.33 a gallon in Birmingham, Alabama.
The highest was $4.13 a gallon in Los Angeles. Lundberg says California saw huge wholesale price hikes during a brief supply shortage. She says supplies are flowing again and pump prices are poised to drop in the Golden State.
The national average price of diesel was down 6 cents over the same period to $2.86 a gallon.
