SHARE ABUNDANCE OF OIL SLOWS GASOLINE PRICE RISE

An unusual autumn rise in retail gasoline prices has slowed nearly to a halt because of abundant oil supplies and volume discounts to sellers, an industry analyst said.

The biweekly Lundberg Survey of 12,000 gasoline stations nationwide shows the average price, including taxes, for all grades was $109.56 a gallon - up 0.13 cent a gallon from two weeks earlier.Prices at many stations along the Wasatch Front ranged from 93.9 to 99.9 cents per gallon for both regular and unleaded.

At self-service stations, the latest Lundberg Survey shows regular leaded at 96.87 cents a gallon, regular unleaded at 98.49 cents and premium unleaded at $1.16.
