Gas prices have jumped 13 to 15 cents a gallon in the past week in West Virginia.

According to a survey by AAA East Central, the average price of a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is $3.49 in the state, although some locations have a higher cost at the pump.

Prices range from $3.43 in Parkersburg to $3.53 in Morgantown.

Nationally the gas average $3.37.

A year ago, gas prices in West Virginia averaged $3.15, with the latest increase being as high as 38 cents a gallon.

If the cost of gasoline prices are higher in West Virginia because of mountainous delivery costs, consider the highest cost is $3.19 a gallon in North Dakota, one of the rougher terrain states.
