(KTVI) – The gas price roller coaster that drivers have been on for several weeks has just gone in the wrong direction.  Prices at the pump jumped nearly $0.40 cents in some places around the St. Louis area.

Drivers were able to fill up for just under $3 Wednesday morning, but that changed by the afternoon. FOX 2 crews found prices as high as $3.39 for regular unleaded gas in Overland, Mo.

There is no word yet on what is behind the sudden increase.
