U.S. gas prices jumped nearly 11 cents per gallon in the past two weeks with the national average for self-serve regular just shy of $3 a gallon, according to a survey released Sunday.

The average price for the grade was $2.995 per gallon Friday, up 10.73 cents in two weeks, according to the Lundberg Survey of 7,000 gas stations across the country. The price was less than 2 cents below the all-time high of $3.01 set Sept. 9, analyst Trilby Lundberg said.

The average mid-grade price was $3.10 a gallon while premium ran $3.20.

The lowest price for gas was $2.70 a gallon in Charleston, S.C., while the highest — $3.27 a gallon — was in Honolulu.
