(WDAY TV) -- Sky high prices at the pump continue to climb, costing drivers more and more by the month.

Nationwide, the average price of unleaded is three dollars, 93 cents a gallon. It climbed 18 cents in March. North Dakota's gas prices jumped 21 cents then.

Drivers in 11 states are now paying more than four dollars a gallon. Nome, Alaska has the country's most expensive gas at nearly six dollars a gallon.

Ben Bernanke, the Federal Reserve Chairman, says, "Probably between now and the next couple months up to July 4th or so we'll probably see prices go up some--somewhat further. After that we should see some relief"

The national average is 29 cents higher than a year. North Dakota's, 19 cents higher.
