Gas prices are up again and drivers are getting hit hard in their wallets.

The national average for a gallon of regular gas is currently $3.70, which is the 15th straight increase.

In North Carolina, drivers are paying about $3.61 a gallon. That's nine cents higher than just a week ago.

Experts said prices are rising because of recent refinery problems and high oil prices.

Gas prices are expected to keep going up through the Labor Day weekend.
