“Crude oil and gasoline futures prices jumped 9% last week, almost completely erasing the losses that led to the 2-week drop at the pump. This could cause falling pump prices to plateau or possibly increase in the coming weeks,” Jenkins said.
On Friday, the U.S. price for oil settled at $79.72 per barrel.
