For the first time in nearly three months, gas prices in the city have increased.

The average New York City price at the pump has risen to $3.75, according to AAA’s Fuel Gauge Report, three cents higher than a week ago.

Last week, gas had fallen to its lowest cost since January.

Over the past month, prices are still down 12 cents.

At this time last year New Yorkers were paying $3.98 for a gallon of gas.

Nationally, the average cost for a gallon of gas is $3.38, a five cent increase over a month ago.
