The average U.S. price of regular-grade gasoline dropped 11 cents per gallon over the past two weeks, to $2.73.

Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg of the Lundberg Survey says Sunday that lower crude oil prices contributed to the drop at the pump. Oil prices rose last week, however, because of tensions between the United States and Iran, as well as following the Federal Reserve signal of a potential interest rate cut.

The price is 22 cents lower than what it was a year ago.

The lowest average is $2.17 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

The average price of diesel fell by 6 cents since June 7, to $3.06.
