Exclamation Nationwide gas prices set another record

NEW YORK (AP) The retail price of gasoline soared more than 18 cents last week to an average $2.55 a gallon nationwide, a new record, the Energy Department reported Monday.
The previous record high was $2.37 per gallon, established the previous week. Adjusting for inflation, retail gasoline prices peaked above $3 a gallon in 1981.

The latest weekly government survey said the average price nationwide of regular-grade gasoline rose by 18.2 cents to $2.55 per gallon, or 67.5 cents a gallon higher than the same time a year ago.

Pump prices were highest on the West Coast, averaging $2.669 a gallon, and cheapest in the Rocky Mountain region, where motorists paid on average $2.44 a gallon. In the Midwest, gas averaged $2.531 per gallon.
