Higher prices at the pump; Gas prices spike nearly 10 cents in two weeks

Gas pump

OKLAHOMA – Pain at the pump as gas prices spike nearly ten cents in two weeks.

The average U.S. price per gallon for regular gasoline is now almost $3.51, according the Lundburg Survey.

That the highest it’s been since September.

Diesel fuel prices also rose, increasing by 2.58 cents from two weeks earlier to an average $4.0323 per gallon.

The blame goes to higher “ethanol” prices, stemming in part from the unrest in Ukraine.

According to the survey, the lowest average price for a gallon of unleaded gas in the  U.S. is $3.18 in Jackson, Mississippi.
