Gasoline prices jump 12 cents

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - - The average price for a gallon of gasoline went up nearly 12 cents over the past three weeks.

The Lundberg survey attributes the rise to an increase in oil prices of more than seven dollars a barrel over the same period.

U.S. pump prices are expected to rise still more in the short term.
