MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) – The nation saw the biggest two-week gas price hike this year. That is according to the Lundberg survey.

The cost of regular unleaded rose to an average of $3.69 a gallon. Which is up more than 18 cents from the start of last month.

The extreme drought has increased costs of corn-based ethanol and is being blamed for helping to push prices up.

Here in Memphis, the average stands at $3.49.
