Oil prices march higher, as gas tops $3.70
NEW YORK (AP) — The price of oil is holding on stubbornly to its recent gains, and that's causing pain at the pump for U.S. drivers.
Benchmark crude rose 70 cents to finish at $93.43 a barrel Tuesday in New York. It's up $5 a barrel so far this month. Retail gasoline, meanwhile, topped an average of $3.70 per gallon for the first time since May 19. The national average has climbed by more than 30 cents in the last month and is up about 10 cents from a year ago, according to AAA, Wright Express and the Oil Price Information Service. In all, 39 states are now seeing higher gas prices than at this time last year.
