NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Retail gas prices hit record highs for the 13th day in a row, motorist group AAA's Web site showed Tuesday.
The nationwide average for a gallon of regular unleaded rose to $3.80, up from $3.794 the previous day.
Gas prices have now risen for 14 straight days.
The AAA national average shows gas prices up about 9% from a month ago and up nearly 19% from year-ago levels.
