CAMARILLO, Calif. (AP) — The average price of gasoline rose a penny over the past two weeks, to $2.25 a gallon.

Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg reports Sunday that the slight increase comes after prices previously fell 63 cents over 19 weeks.

Lundberg says the end of the price decline comes as crude costs jumped a bit.

The current price is 70 cents per gallon under its year-ago point.

In the Lower 48 states, the highest average price of regular gasoline was $2.88 per gallon in Los Angeles. The lowest was $1.90 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

The U.S. average diesel price is $2.55 per gallon, down about two cents from two weeks ago.
