Gas prices drop 2 cents nationwide

CAMARILLO, Calif. -- The price of a gallon of gas fell by 2 cents nationwide over the past two weeks, an industry analyst said Sunday.

The average weighted price for gas nationwide, including all grades and taxes, was about $1.41 a gallon, according to the Lundberg Survey of 8,000 stations nationwide.

That's down 2 cents a gallon from Nov. 22, the date of the last survey, when the average cost for a gallon of gas stood at $1.43, analyst Trilby Lundberg said.

The price dropped because crude oil prices remained low and gasoline supplies remained ample, Lundberg said.
