Gas prices were already high, but overnight they went up 11 cents, approaching the $4 per-gallon average nationwide.

The national average for a gallon of regular gasoline rose to $3.84 on Friday, up from $3.73 on Thursday, according to AAA. That comes after another 11-cent increase between Monday and Thursday.

Prices averaged $3.57 a week ago and $3.42 a month ago, the organization said.
