LOS ANGELES (CNN) -- Gasoline prices rose more than a cent a gallon nationally over the past two weeks, continuing an upward trend in prices that began in October, according to the Lundberg Survey of 10,000 gas stations taken on November 22.
The overall price nationally for all grades of gasoline, sold both at full-service and self-serve pumps was an average 130.32 cents a gallon. That's 1.32 cents higher than two weeks ago when the last survey was done on November 8th.
Average gas prices have risen less than three cents a gallon in the last six weeks, after declining more than 10 cents between late May and October. Gas prices rose 21 cents in the first five months of the year, according to the Lundberg Survey.
"Gasoline prices are about 13 cents higher than at this time last year and it's almost entirely because of higher crude prices working their way to the pumps in recent weeks," said Lundberg Survey editor Tribly Lundberg.
