Prices at the pump continue to trend upward, as costs rose for the eighth consecutive week.
The average price for a gallon of gas in the city has risen to $4.08, according to AAA’s Fuel Gauge Report.
Over the past month the cost of gas has jumped 17 cents.
For much of the year, drivers were paying less for gas than a year ago. But as prices have steadily risen, the cost has zoomed past what New Yorkers were paying last year when gas was $3.97 per gallon.
Nationally, the average also continues to rise. A gallon of gas nationally is $3.75, 26 cents higher than a month ago.
