Gas Prices Up Fourth Consecutive Week

It's summer and the government intervenes, after all


After falling for months, gasoline prices are on the rise, topping an average of $3.50 gallon for self-serve regular across the nation. It was the fourth week of increases.

A gallon of regular now sells for $3.508 a gallon, up a penny from $3.494 a gallon in the Energy Information Administration's latest survey. At least it's down 20 cents a gallon from a year ago.
