(CNN) -- Gasoline prices in the United States remained stable over the past two weeks, falling about two-tenths of a cent per gallon, according to a survey of 10,000 gas stations around the country. Over the past four months, consumers have seen a "comparatively extended period of stability," according to Lundberg Survey editor Trilby Lundberg.
The national survey found the price for all grades of gasoline -- sold both at full-service and self-service pumps -- averaged 130.62 cents a gallon. The average price for the most popular type of gasoline, regular unleaded sold at self- serve pumps, was 125.21 cents a gallon.
Gasoline prices had been on a roller-coaster ride that started when they rose 21 cents in the first five months of 1996 and then declined more than 10 cents between late May and October.
