Gas Prices on Rapid Increase

February 11, 2013 Updated Feb 11, 2013 at 10:53 AM EDT

UNDATED (www.incnow.tv) – The average price of a gallon of gas jumped nearly $0.25 over the past two weeks.

The Lundberg survey of 2,500 stations nationwide found that the average price for a gallon is now $3.59. That’s the biggest two-week jump in nearly two years. The highest prices were in Los Angeles, where the average is $4.10 a gallon.

The lowest were in Billings, Montana, where the average price is $3.05 a gallon. Lundberg says a rise in wholesale prices is responsible for the hike.
