Gas prices up 10 cents in two weeks

Created: 03/10/2014 6:38 AM WHEC.com

Gas prices have spiked an average of almost 10 cents a gallon in just two weeks.

The Lundberg Survey says the national average is now almost $3.51 a gallon. That’s the highest it's been since September. In Rochester, the average is $3.74.

Experts say some of the price jump can be tied back to the unrest in Ukraine. The country is an exporter of corn, the main ingredient in ethanol used for fuel.
