Gas prices headed up again

Just in time for summer, gas prices are on the rise.

The latest Lundberg gas survey shows the average price of a gallon of regular gasoline in the U.S. has risen by 2 cents over the last two weeks to $3.71.

Analysts blame crude oil prices, which went up over jitters about Iraqi oil production as violence there grows.

However, according to the Associated Press, much of that increase hasn't been passed on to consumers yet, and prices could increase over the coming weeks.

Of cities surveyed in the continental U.S., Tucson, Arizona, had the lowest average price at $3.37 a gallon. Chicago had the highest average at $4.15 a gallon.
