CAMARILLO, Calif. (AP) — Nationwide gas prices hit yet another record in the past three weeks, rising just over 1 cent to nearly $3.03 per gallon, according to a survey released Sunday.

The national average for self-serve regular stood at $3.025 a gallon Friday, up 1.06 cents since July 21, according to the Lundberg Survey of 7,000 gas stations across the country.

The price exceeds the previous high of $3.015 set in July, analyst Trilby Lundberg said.

A gallon of midgrade gasoline averaged around $3.13, and premium averaged $3.23.
