WASHINGTON (AP) -- Add New York to the growing list of states where gas prices are topping $4 per gallon.
According to AAA's Daily Fuel Gauge, the Empire State today became the sixth state to top $4 for the average price of a gallon of gas, joining Alaska, California, Connecticut, Hawaii and Illinois. The average price of gas also rose to more than $4 per gallon in Washington, D.C., yesterday.
The next states to join the list could be Michigan, which has gas for $3.95 per gallon on average, and Indiana, where the average price is $3.94. Nevada, Washington and Wisconsin are close behind.
Hawaii has the highest price in the U.S. at $4.48 per gallon. Wyoming has the lowest, at $3.54.
The national average for gas has increased for 26 straight days, and is now at $3.83 per gallon. That's up 29 cents from a month ago.
