CAMARILLO, Calif. >> The average U.S. price of regular-grade gasoline surged 13 cents a gallon over the past two weeks, to $2.91.

Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg of the Lundberg Survey says one of the reasons for the spike is an increase in crude oil costs.

The highest average price in the nation is $4.04 a gallon in the San Francisco Bay Area.
