The average price of gasoline continues to creep upward and is about 1.8 cents a gallon higher now than it was two weeks ago, according to the national Lundberg Survey of fuel prices.

The U.S. average price for regular gasoline, according to the survey released Sunday, is $1.96 a gallon.

Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg says that's still much lower than the $3.20 a gallon that was being paid this time last year. It's also well below the record high of $4.11 last July.

The city with the highest average price of gas was Honolulu at $2.38 a gallon. The lowest price was $1.67 in Cheyenne, Wyo.
