DENVER (KDVR) — The national average for a gallon of gas rose above $4 on Monday morning.

According to AAA, the national average for a gallon of regular unleaded fuel is $4.06.

During the first full week of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the price of regular gas rose by almost 41 cents, according to AAA.

That represents the second-largest jump in average national prices in a week, GasBuddy reported.

Patrick De Haan, the head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy, said in a statement that the Russian invasion and seasonal price changes mean Americans should prepare to pay more for gas than ever before.

Here are the most expensive states for gas as of Monday at 8 a.m.:
