gas-card(AP) — After nine weeks of falling gas prices, the average U.S. price of a gallon of gasoline is up 3 cents over the past two weeks.

The Lundberg Survey of fuel prices released Sunday says the price of a gallon of regular is $3.25. Midgrade costs an average of $3.44 a gallon, and premium is $3.59.

Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg said it’s the first price hike since Sept. 6.

Of the cities surveyed in the Lower 48 states, the highest average, $3.58 a gallon, was found in San Diego. The lowest, $2.93, was in Tulsa, Okla.

    WOW,,,, and we in the fine North Platte area NEVER got a taste of the below 3.00 price thanks the local gas mafia. The price was 2.83 in GI this past week when I filled up. We are just so lucky to have the mafia here to take our $$.

    Sure it is going up. It always does just before a holiday. Gas co`s are by nature greedy. It seems strange that when the oil goes up at the well, the gas prices instantly raise. But, when it goes down at the well it takes weeks before the pump prices drop.
