Gas prices are displayed on a sign at a gas station on March 3 in Hampshire, Illinois. The national average price for a gallon of regular gas stood at $3.84 a gallon, according to AAA. That is the highest price since September 2012 and 11 cents higher than Thursday.

Gas prices are rising to a level that America has not been seen in nearly 10 years. 

The national average price for a regular gallon of gas climbed to $3.84 on Friday. 

AAA says this is the highest it’s been since September 2012. Prices are rising at a pace America hasn’t seen since Hurricane Katrina in 2005. 

Nine states are already paying more than $4 per gallon and the national average is expected to get there soon, too. 

Gas prices are expected to continue to soar as Russia continues its invasion of Ukraine.
