ATLANTA (CNN) — After a two-week climb in gasoline prices, there appeared to be some short-term moderation Monday – but another run at the record high set last week seems likely, two surveys indicated.
The average price of gasoline jumped 15 cents over the past two weeks to a national average of $3.62 per gallon of self-serve regular, according to the biweekly Lundberg Survey released Sunday. The rise continued at virtually the same rate as the previous two weeks, when the average price went up 16 cents per gallon.
Separately, AAA reported Monday that the national average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline fell for the fourth straight day, down 3/10 of a cent to $3.611. The price is 1.2 cents below the $3.623-a-gallon record set last Thursday, which marked the 17th day in a row of new highs.
