There is no relief in sight for drivers’ wallets at the pump, as gas prices continue to rise week-to-week as the price of crude oil fluctuates overseas.

For the sixth straight week, gas prices have risen, up to an average of $2.61 per gallon, up from $2.49 a month ago and $2.26 a year ago. The average rose three cents since last week.

According to a AAA New York spokesman, the price has been affected by multiple factors, including the price of crude oil overseas and an increase in demand nationwide. It also comes at a time when refineries begin the process of transitioning from a winter blend of gasoline to a more eco-friendly, expensive, summer blend.

In New York, drivers will pay an average of $2.77 per gallon. In New Jersey, motorists will pay an average of $2.71, and in Connecticut, the price split the difference, with an average of $2.75. Each are among the most expensive in the country.
