Due to the extreme cold hitting much of the nation, drivers should prepare for a spike in gas prices.

According to Gas Buddy, the price of gasoline may jump 10 to 20 cents per gallon over the next two weeks, as millions of barrels have gone offline due to the extreme cold in the south.

11 refineries in Texas and one in Kansas have at least partially shut down due to the temperature.
