A week after surpassing $4 a gallon, city gas prices continue to rise.

The average price at the pump in the city has risen to $4.07, according to AAA’s Fuel Gauge Report, four cents higher than a week ago.

Over the past month the cost of gas has jumped 20 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 below $4.

Nationally, the average also continues to rise. A gallon of gas nationally is $3.72, 26 cents higher than a month ago.
