The average U.S. price of a gallon of gasoline has jumped 10 cents over the past two weeks.

The Lundberg Survey of Fuel Prices released Sunday said the price of a gallon of regular is $3.51, the highest it has been since September. Midgrade costs an average of $3.69 a gallon, and premium is $3.84.

Diesel was up three cents over the past two weeks at $4.03.

Of the cities surveyed in the Lower 48 states, Los Angeles has the nation's highest average price for gas at $3.94. Jackson, Miss., has the lowest at $3.18.

Worries over Ukraine and rising ethanol prices are to blame for this latest spike.
