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.

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.

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.
