The cost of a gallon of gas continues to climb as prices at the pump approach their highest point in nearly a year.

Gas has risen than 13 cents in the past month to its current price of $4.094, according to AAA’s daily fuel gauge. Prices tend to peak during summer driving season, meaning gas costs will likely continue to rise.

A year ago average gas prices were $3.817 in the city.

The national average is also rising and is currently $3.842, 27 cents short of the all-time high.
