The average cost of a gallon of regular gasoline in the U.S. rose 5 cents, to $3.56, during the past two weeks.
That's according to a survey released Sunday.
Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg says the increase stems from a jump in the price of ethanol used to make gasoline.
She says another reason for the rise is that U.S. refiners are starting to switch over to more expensive summer-blend gasoline.
