Gasoline Price Drops Quarter of a Cent Nationally
LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Gasoline prices dropped one-fourth of a cent on average during the last two weeks, an industry analyst said Sunday.
The average pump price, including all grades at full- and self-serve stations and taxes, was 119.73 cents a gallon as of Sept. 25, Trilby Lundberg said.
That was a decrease of .28 cent over the Sept. 11 price. The Lundberg Survey canvasses about 12,000 gas stations nationwide.
The price of gasoline had risen through the end of August and the beginning of September. Ms. Lundberg said the drop in price may be short-lived.
At self-service stations, regular unleaded was 114.08 cents a gallon; premium unleaded was 131.30 cents; mid-grade unleaded was 123.56 cents and regular leaded was 115.58 cents.
At full-service stations, regular unleaded was 139.88 cents; premium unleaded was 154.65 cents; mid-grade unleaded was 146.41 cents and regular leaded was 148.92 cents.
