The average U.S. price of a gallon of gasoline has risen five-cents in the past two weeks.
    
The Lundberg Survey of fuel prices released Sunday says the price of a gallon of regular is $3.61, the highest price in Lundberg's twice-monthly surveys since late July 2013.
    
But the current price is four-cents under its year ago point. Midgrade costs an average of $3.79 a gallon, and premium $3.94. The average diesel price is $4.00, down 2 cents.
    
Of the cities surveyed in the Lower 48 states, Billings, Montana has the nation's lowest average price at $3.20. Los Angeles has the highest at $4.04. In Rochester, the average price is $3.73 a gallon.
    
In California, the lowest average price was $3.83 in Sacramento. The average statewide for a gallon of regular was $3.07.
