The average price is one-tenth of a cent higher than one week ago, in part because of a 1.4-cent increase on Thursday, the largest daily increase since Aug. 14, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.
However, the average price is 9.7 cents less than one month ago and 30.4 cents lower than one year ago thanks to a stretch of 56 decreases in 58 days ending Oct. 31.
