CAMARILLO, Calif.– The typical cost of a gallon of regular-grade fuel dropped 5 cents nationally over the past 2 weeks, to $2.41.

Market analyst Trilby Lundberg of the Lundberg Study said Sunday that the drop reflected lower costs for petroleum, along with abundant gas supplies.

She says the national average is 14 cents a gallon above the cost a year ago.

Gas in San Francisco was the highest in the adjoining United States at approximately $3.02 a gallon. The lowest was in Tulsa, Oklahoma, at $2.02 a gallon.

The U.S. average diesel cost is $2.57, down 2 cents from two weeks back.
