NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- Gas prices rose Tuesday for the 14th straight day, with drivers in some parts of the United States now paying more than $3.90 a gallon.
The national average price for a gallon of regular gasoline is now $3.517, according to a daily survey by motorist group AAA. That's up eight tenths of a cent from $3.509 on Monday.
Gas prices have risen nearly 15 cents so far this month. That's on top of a nearly 27 cent increase in February.
California continues to have the highest gas prices in the nation, with drivers there paying an average of $3.908 a gallon. Hawaii had the second highest average price at $3.89 a gallon, while Alaska came in third at $3.845 a gallon.
The lowest gas prices are in Wyoming, where gas averages $3.197 a gallon. Montana and Missouri also have relatively low gas prices.
Gas prices have been driven higher by an increase in the price of crude oil, the main ingredient in gasoline.
