CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -

Motorists in West Virginia are seeing higher prices following the Christmas holiday, increasing more than 3 cents since last week.

The Triple A's weekly Fuel Gauge says the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is now $3.35 in West Virginia. That's about 4 cents more than a year ago.

The auto club says gas prices have been declining in recent months because of the switch to winter-blend fuel, increasing inventories, lower demand and cheaper crude oil prices. But whether prices continue to rise or fall will be impacted by the looming "fiscal cliff."

Nationally, gas prices average about $3.25 this week.

In West Virginia, prices at the pump range from a high of nearly $3.49 in Martinsburg to a low of about $3.31 in Weirton.
