After reaching 2012 lows, gas prices have ticked up each of the last two weeks.

The average New York City price at the pump has risen to $3.81, according to AAA’s Fuel Gauge Report, six cents higher than a week ago.

New Yorkers are paying the same amount to fill up as they were a month ago, but the prices are headed in opposite direction. Last month gas was in the midst of a nearly three month decline.

At this time last year New Yorkers were paying $4.05 for a gallon of gas.

Nationally, the average cost for a gallon of gas is $3.40, 2 cents higher than a week ago.
