CAMARILLO, Calif — (AP) The average U.S. price of regular-grade gasoline rose 8 cents over the past two weeks, to $2.05 per gallon. Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg of the Lundberg Survey says Sunday that the jump comes as gasoline demand increases amid widespread easing of stay-at-home orders.

Lundberg says the current average price is 88 cents less than it was a year ago. The highest average price in the nation for regular-grade gas is $3.10 per gallon in Honolulu. The lowest average is $1.55 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The average price of diesel is $2.55, up a penny.
