Albany -- More bad news to report about the gas pump. The national average hit the four dollar mark for the first time.

Gas prices went up two cents Saturday night bringing the national average to four dollars according to the AAA fuel gauge report.

Prices in Albany are still hovering between $3.98 and $3.99 a gallon for regular unleaded, but those prices have been just as painful on drivers.

"I think it's ridiculous and the public especially the working public is being ripped off. And I hope it doesn't hit the six dollars that their predicting on the news by the end of the summer," said Walter Levine.

Last year, the national average for a gallon of regular unleaded was $3.11.
