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.
