Average gasoline prices in Pittsburgh jumped 11.3 cents a gallon in the past week, averaging $3.66 across on Sunday, GasBuddy.com said.

The national average rose 14.4 cents to $3.48 a gallon.

Gas prices are rising in Western Pennsylvania and across the country on higher crude oil prices, said Patrick DeHaan, GasBuddy.com senior petroleum analyst in Chicago.

“Unfortunately for angry motorists, there doesn't seem to be much relief in sight, at least for the time being, as retail prices continue to climb in virtually all areas of the country,” he said.
