AAA says gas prices may top Virginia’s previous record high later this year, and if that happens, it means those prices will top $4 a gallon. We’re not there yet, but at $3.41 a gallon on average for regular yesterday statewide, that is already 12 cents a gallon higher than at any time last year — and this at a time of year that normally sees relatively low prices.  More from WFIR’s Evan Jones:

AAA says the current record average statewide price for regular is $4.01 a gallon set July 17, 2008.
