The price of gasoline rose another 2.5 cents over the past two weeks to a record nationwide average of $1.82 per gallon for all grades on April 9, according to the Lundberg surrey of 8,000 stations across the United States, reported the Associated Press. Analyst Trilby Lundberg said high crude oil prices and tight capacity contributed to the rise. Gasoline prices are up 31.5 cents per gallon nationwide since late December, the survey found. The national weighted average price of gasoline, including taxes, at self-serve pumps on April 9 was about $1.79 for regular, $1.89 for midgrade and $1.98 for premium.
