Gasoline Prices Rose Last Week
by Tom Moeller July 18, 2006

Versus the prior week, retail gasoline prices rose two cents last week to $2.99 per gallon (29.0% y/y). During June prices averaged $2.89.

A further increase in retail gas prices may be in store this week as the spot market price for regular unleaded gasoline yesterday at $2.25 was up another nickel from last week's average.

The price of West Texas Intermediate crude oil yesterday at $75.31 per barrel was about unchanged with last week's average but it was up sharply from the $70.96 averaged during June.
