NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- After jumping more than 3 cents over the weekend, gas prices across America could top $4 a gallon this week, according to one industry analyst.
"We're going to hit $4 this week, nationally," said Tom Kloza, chief analyst at the Oil Price Information Service. "There's enough momentum to take us up there."
As of Monday, the national average price for a gallon of regular gasoline now stands at $3.952, according a daily survey from motorist group AAA. That's up from $3.943 a gallon on Sunday and continues a 44-day streak of gas price increases.

Old news! We’re already over $4.15 here in northeastern Ohio!
I wish it was only $4.00 where I live.
$4.11 in my neck of the woods.
Pfft. We’re getting hosed at $4.29 (it went up today, CC).
$4.17 at the BP station near my home. Others are around $3.99.
just saw $4.28 regular this evening in central IN.
$4.25 in Indianapolis today.
$4.19 in Brunswick.
it just hit $4 around my neighborhood. I have a bet it’s $6 by labor day.
We’re at $3.94 here in NH.
There are now 13 states where it is over $4.
Yes, but our dear leader, the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, had the will, the courage, and the manliness to single-handedly take care of Osama Bin Laden, so...
$3.59 here in Murfreesboro, TN...$3.79 in Smithville TN
Saw $4.02 in Massachusetts today.
Northern Illinois has been over $4 for weeks now, more like $4.38 & up!
I’ll take two more big weekend hits this summer because I live close to Michigan Speedway. We always get a spike on race weekends due to race traffic.
Is CNN still stuck in 2004?? It’s been above $4 for the past 2 months now. Effing $4.50 in L.A.
This is a national average from AAA.
Although I too find it hard to believe. Places like California are heading to $5. So to average it under $4 would mean some states are still in the low-mid 3s. Where are these states? LOL!
I saw a couple of $4 signs today in NH for the first time.
Gas is $4.20 in Ct and has been for a while.
SoCal is at $4.29..but that was a few days ago.
Already $4.25 here in Columbus.
Just went from $3.75 to $3.91 overnight here in JAX.
I just paid $4.25 a gallon here in CT
Regular is between $4.25 and $4.37 in the Detroit area.
$3.97 Regular with ethanol
Highest I’ve seen in Central NC is $3.90. Average is $3.80-$3.85. The $4 psychological barrier is holding the price down, at least for now.
That’s in Bellevue, NE

This is a good quote to use in the post-it note campaign next time you fill up at the gas station.
I got an email from Gas Buddy advising of the hike, and Meijer confirmed it on Facebook a short time later. Seems there’s a refinery/distribution problem in either Illinois or Indiana, which is hitting the Great Lakes area hard.
Geez, like we weren’t hit before.
The cost of leaving this liberal enclave is increasing.
$3.99 to $4.15 in SW Ohio
Gas prices don’t matter - Obama got Osama. All by himself, according to him!
Yeah I was coming back from Ventura yesterday and at the Arco by Lake Piru regular was $4.36.
At my gas station here in the western ‘burbs of Chitown, it had been at $4.299 when it dropped to $4.279 last week and stayed there a few days. Today on my way into work it was at $4.379, and on the way back home it was at $4.459 . $5, here we come.
Yeah right, CNN. Maybe last week.
Filled up last Monday @ $3.87/gallon. Same station a couple of hours ago, $4.19. (32 cents in just the past week)
At this rate we’ll easily blow by nationwide $5.00 averages by Memorial Day.
Jumped .20 to 4.29 in W. MI this afternoon. The annual Unexpected Troubles at Refineries are a couple weeks early this year.
Don’t worry... OBUMBLER will FIX it. /s
