Gas prices have held steady over the past week as they continue their climb back toward $4.

The average New York City price at the pump has risen to $3.90, according to AAA’s Fuel Gauge Report, just one cent higher than a week ago.

Fuel has remained below $4 since the end of May. Over the past month the cost of gas has jumped 17 cents.

New Yorkers are still paying less than they were last year when residents were paying $4.11 for a gallon of gas.

Nationally, the average cost for a gallon of gas is $3.49, two cents higher than a week ago.
