Gas prices up 8 cents a gallon in U.S. in two weeks

U.S. gas prices rose by 8 cents over the past two weeks, pushed up by a spike in crude oil prices, according to a new survey of filling stations.

The latest Lundberg Survey, conducted Friday, found the average price of self-serve regular gasoline was $2.77 per gallon.

That's 8 cents higher than from the last survey, two weeks ago, survey publisher Trilby Lundberg said.

    @sanity is gone? Being informed does not make one an expert, but it does qualify posting. The oil giants could build more refineries if they chose. The federal government isn't stopping them. Just a handful of oil corps. own virtually all of the refifineries. Their profits have doubled these past few years. .50 some cents per gal. profit for ea. gallon refined. The gov. doesn't stop giants from merging and driving the small refiners out. Check your local Congressmans stock portfolio. Probably you will find his retirement hitched to big-oil and big-pharma too.

    Until all of us come together to send a message to corporate America, change will not come ! Stop buying things and prices will fall. Ignore their marketing schemes. Rely on the principles of our forefathers. We are all either part of the problem or part of the solution.

    I credit to the up and coming election. The last time they lowered prices hoping you would re elect those in charge that were the reason for prices being so high. Corporate America is mainly Republican. Dick Cheney and the status quo that made millions raising energy prices thought that would work. Now it's the reverse, raise prices just before the election and let people blame the Democrats.
