PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Western Pennsylvania gas consumers are continuing to pay more and more at the pump.

It was announced Tuesday that drivers in western Pennsylvania are paying 6 cents more this week – with an average price of $3.84 per gallon.

That’s more than the national average of $3.782 – which is a 43.5 increase over the last month.

Rising crude oil prices are only somewhat to blame for the jump. AAA in Pittsburgh says the jump is primarily a result of refinery maintenance issues, meaning less gas is being produced.

Below is a list of average prices per gallon of unleaded gasoline, per region according to AAA:

  • $ 3.855 Altoona
  • $ 3.859 Beaver
  • $ 3.815 Bradford
  • $ 3.826 Brookville
  • $ 3.858 Butler
  • $ 3.878 Clarion
  • $ 3.860 Du Bois
  • $ 3.695 Erie
  • $ 3.857 Greensburg
