COPY-Analyst: U.S. gas prices keep rising but at slower pace

CAMARILLO, Calif. One analyst says nationwide gas prices have peaked.

Trilby Lundberg, who publishes the nationwide Lundberg Survey, says the average retail price of a gallon of gas has gone up nearly four cents in the past two weeks. She says that's a "drop in the bucket" compared to the previous rate of increase, which was 25 cents over two weeks.

Lundberg says the pace has slowed because crude oil prices have slipped, refiners have brought back some of their capacity and demand has not grown.

Self-serve regular is now averaging about two dollars, 95 cents a gallon, up from two-91 cents two weeks ago.

In Alabama, Triple-A's Daily Fuel Gauge Report today shows regular unleaded averages two-79 a gallon. Midgrade fuels are two-98 and premium gas, on average, is three-oh-seven a gallon.
