Gasoline prices rise slightly in survey
January 12, 1997
LOS ANGELES (CNN) -- Gasoline prices rose more than a penny a gallon nationally over the past three weeks, according to the latest Lundberg Survey of service stations.
The price for all grades of gasoline, sold at full-service and self-serve pumps, was an average 130.78 cents a gallon in the survey taken January 9, according to the Lundberg Survey. That was 1.16 cents higher than the last survey, done December 20.
The average price for the most popular type of gasoline, regular unleaded sold at self-serve pumps, was 125.38 cents a gallon, which was 1.26 cents higher than the last survey.
Average gas prices have not changed significantly since November, according to the survey.
Crude oil prices were about 14 cents higher at the start of 1997 than the same point last year, and gasoline prices were up about 13 cents, Lundberg said.
