US gas prices steady: Lundberg survey


The average price of gasoline in the United States changed little, rising 0.35 cents to $3.6911 per gallon over the past three weeks, according to the Lundberg survey released on Sunday.

Trilby Lundberg, the publisher of survey, said that prices held "remarkably steady" over the period from May 16 until June 6.

"It's no shock considering that crude oil prices fluctuated very gently," she said adding that supply also kept up with demand.

"Retail prices are more likely to slip from here than to rise," Lundberg said.
