Some parts of the nation are already paying record prices for gas and officials say to "brace for more pain at the pump."

Since Monday, the national average for a gallon of regular gasoline has increased three cents to $3.56. According to new data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA), total domestic gasoline stocks decreased by 600,000 bbl to 246.5 million bbl last week.

AAA warns drivers should brace for more pain at the pump. That's because the nation is currently seeing an increase in gasoline demand along with a decrease in supply.
