Gas prices jump 18 cents over two weeks
Today marks the 20th straight day of rising prices at the pump. The Lundberg survey says national prices jumped 18 cents over the past two weeks. The average price for a gallon of regular gas is at $3.69. Higher oil prices are one reason for the increase. Investors are also worried that tensions with Iran could lead to a supply disruption.
In California, prices have already passed the $4 mark. AAA says the statewide average is now $4.29 - that's up a quarter from a week ago. Diesel prices are $4.45. In the Bay Area, drivers in Oakland are paying $4.27. In San Jose, prices are $4.28 and San Francisco is $4.34.
