Gasoline Up 10 Cents a Gallon in the Last Week

THE DELTA (Ben Caxton) — The average price of regular gasoline in America jumped 10 cents a gallon over the past two weeks to $3.00, an increase of 41 cents over the past three months. Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg says that’s being driven by higher crude oil costs and the phasing-in of summer-grade gasoline, which is used to prevent smog. The highest average price in the contiguous 48 states was $3.79 in the San Francisco Bay Area and over the weekend at least one station in Jackson was selling regular for $2.29 a gallon. Best prices around the area include $2.46 in Vicksburg, $2.54 a gallon in Greenville, $2.58 in Lake Village, and $2.65 in Greenwood.
