Some West Virginians are seeing red as they hand out the green when they fill up the tank.

Gas prices around southern West Virginia are getting close to $4 a gallon.  In Raleigh County the cost for regular is at $3.79, but in Greenbrier County it is even higher.  Stations in Lewisburg are selling gas for $3.83 and in Sam Black it is 5-cents higher at $3.88.

Those prices are about the average for the Central Atlantic states according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.   The average price for regular gas across the region is at $3.73 a gallon.

The price at the pump is well above the national average though, which is sitting at $3.61 a gallon.

Gas prices have gone up steadily over the past month.  The national average during the week of Jan. 7 was just $3.29 a gallon.
