Gas Prices on the rise

A rise at the pump.

The Lundberg Survey says gasoline prices edged up nearly four
cents a gallon on average nationwide in the past three weeks as the
price of crude oil rose.

The national average for self-serve regular was two-22 per
gallon, up three-point-six cents since January 19th. The mid-grade
average was two-33 per gallon and premium was two-44, according to
Trilby Lundberg's latest survey of seven-thousand gas stations
across the country.

Crude oil was up nearly eight dollars a barrel over the same
three week period. But Lundberg says oil companies have plenty of
gas on hand and demand is low this time of year, leading to lower
price hikes.
