AAA says the price of gas has jumped more than 45 cents in the past month.
We talked to some drivers who hadn't filled up in a week and were shocked to see the price had jumped 15 cents since their last trip to the gas station.
"Like oh my god no!" one man said.
Another exclaimed, "That's crazy!"
AAA says expect the more than a penny a day increases to continue, at least in the short term.
New Orleans price for regular gas:
Week Ago $3.394
Month Ago $3.188
Year Ago $3.501
