Retail gasoline prices, which have jumped nearly 9 cents per gallon in the last three months, are continuing to rise because of changing regulations on leaded gas and traditional summer increases in demand, oil industry analyst Dan Lundberg said.

The average price went up 5.5 cents a gallon over the past two weeks, oil analyst Dan Lundberg said, but gasoline prices average 27 cents a gallon cheaper this Memorial Day than last.

Average prices at self-service pumps, based on Lundberg's survey, were: regular leaded, 83.11 cents a gallon; regular unleaded, 88.
