Average US price of gas up 4 cents a gallon to $2.26

CAMARILLO, Calif. (AP) — The average U.S. price of regular-grade gasoline jumped 4 cents a gallon over the past two weeks to $2.26.

Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg of the Lundberg Survey says Sunday that a rise in crude oil prices spurred the increase.

The price at the pump is 35 cents less than it was a year ago.  

The highest average price in the nation is $3.34 a gallon in San Francisco.

The lowest average is $1.81 in Houston.

The average price of diesel spiked 6 cents over the past two weeks to $2.58.

The survey was conducted Friday.
