Gas Prices Climb More Than Three Cents Nationally

Retail gas prices have jumped another three cents nationwide, following a nine-cent hike earlier this month.

The Lundberg Survey finds the weighted average price for all three grades of gas climbed to two dollars and 36 cents a gallon Friday. Self-Serve regular now averages two-33 per gallon.

Prices at the pump have gone up nearly 20 cents since December second -- and are 45 cents higher than they were a year ago.

Among stations surveyed, the lowest average price for regular unleaded was in Portland, Oregon, and the priciest gas was in Honolulu.
