Prices at the pump have surged past $4 in New York City for the first time since May.

The average price for a gallon of gas in the city has risen to $4.03, according to AAA’s Fuel Gauge Report, seven cents higher than a week ago.

Over the past month the cost of gas has jumped 26 cents. Gas prices fell below $4 at the end of May and had remained there for two and a half months.

Nationally, the average is rising too. A gallon of gas nationally is $3.70, 31 cents higher than a month ago.
