Gas prices hit a record high as inflation slams wallets 

In another blow to the US economy, prices at the pump soared to fresh record highs. 

The national average price for gasoline climbed more than four cents 

On Tuesday to $4.37 a gallon, according to AAA. 

That takes out the prior record of $4.33 set on March 11. 

The gas spike prices are up 17 cents in the past week alone 

The national average dipped to as low as $4.07 a gallon in April 

Pump prices are up about 25% since Russia's invasion of Ukraine 

Real gas prices, adjusted for inflation, would need to climb above $5.30 a gallon  

US oil tumbled 6% to $103.09 a barrel on Monday
