CAMARILLO, California (AP/WJW) — The average U.S. price of regular-grade gasoline jumped a nickel per gallon over the past two weeks to $2.94.

In Ohio, the average price of gas is much cheaper at $2.63 a gallon, according to AAA.

Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg of the Lundberg Survey says Sunday that the price at the pump might be near its peak as gasoline supply evens out across the country.

The price of gas has spiked 77 cents per gallon since Nov. 20 and is at the highest point since May 2019.

The highest average price in the nation right now is $3.94 a gallon in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The lowest average is $2.54 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
