Generally the former is going to be correct, and the latter incorrect; you wouldn't normally use the verb surged with an object in that way. So examples:
Sanctions on Russia(x) have made oil prices(y) surge.
A sudden drop in demand(x) can make electrical current(y) surge.
You can use surged, but normally with a complement rather than an object.
The crowd(x) surged forward.
