Nationwide Gas Prices Decline Slightly Over Last Two Weeks

By  | 

CAMARILLO, Calif. (AP) - A nationwide survey finds US gas
prices declined in the past two weeks, but the drop is hardly
enough to provide relief for summer travelers.

The Lundberg Survey says the average price for self-serve
regular gas on Friday was down 4.5 cents to $2.89 a gallon.

That's just $.06 less than this year's peak price of $2.95 a
gallon in early May, but still $.68 higher than last year's

Charleston, South Carolina, had the lowest average price of gas
in the US, selling at $2.61 a gallon. The highest average pump
price, at $3.26 per gallon, was in Honolulu.
