LOS ANGELES (CNN) -- Gasoline prices across the United States
continue to drop.
The Lundberg Survey reports the average price for a gallon of
gasoline is down just over 2 cents in the past two weeks.
Gasoline prices have dropped 6 cents since early September.
The average price for all grades of gas, both full- and
self-serve, is $1.26 a gallon. The decline was attributed to
a combination of lower demand and ample supplies.
The drop in prices is greatest in the Midwest. St. Louis has
the least expensive gasoline, at $1.09 a gallon for
self-serve regular. Honolulu is on the opposite end of the
scale, with prices averaging about $1.61 per gallon.
The survey covers the period from October 10 through October
