An increase in the worldwide supply of crude oil contributed to dip in U.S. prices at the gas pump over the last two weeks, an industry analyst said Sunday.

Between Oct. 22 and Friday, the combined national average price for all grades of gasoline dropped to $2.04, down 2.6 cents from the previous two weeks, said Trilby Lundberg, who publishes the semimonthly Lundberg Survey of 7,000 gas stations across the country.

The biggest seller, self-serve regular, had an average national price of $2.01 per gallon, down 3 cents. Mid-grade was $2.11 a gallon, down 12 cents, while premium was $2.21 per gallon, down 7 cents.
