JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Arkansans are paying more at the pump after a recent survey by GasBuddy.

According to the website, the average retail price in the Natural State has risen to 3.4 cents per gallon to an average of $2.09 as of Sunday. The national average increased 4.3 cents per gallon to $2.32 per gallon.

Including the change in gas prices during the past week, prices Sunday were 24 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 0.9 cents per gallon lower than a month ago, GasBuddy stated.

"We long anticipated seeing gasoline prices beginning to rise en masse in the spring, but uncharacteristically, it took until nearly April Fool's Day for it to begin. There's no fooling this time- the rally in prices does seem to be more credible as oil and gasoline markets rebound," said Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst for GasBuddy.com.

GasBuddy surveys 1,826 gas outlets in Arkansas daily.
