Gas Prices Hit $3.60 Per Gallon, Up Slightly From Last Week

Americans are paying more at the gas pump this week, according to an Energy Information Administration report released Monday.

The national average price for regular gasoline clocked in at $3.596 per gallon Monday, up $0.017 from a week ago but $0.012 below the same time last year. The Gulf Coast region led the increase, with prices up $0.049 over the past week. On the other end of the spectrum, Midwesterners are actually paying around $0.011 less for their gas compared to last week. 


While gas prices increased, diesel prices declined, with a $0.016 dip over the past week to $3.959 per gallon. This latest price tag puts diesel $0.018 per gallon below the same time last year. Prices fell nationwide, but the Rocky Mountain region enjoyed the largest $0.020 dip in diesel. The West Coast saw diesel prices edge down just $0.008. 


At these latest prices, the West Coast pays the prettiest penny for gasoline ($3.88), while the East Coast doles out $4.075 for diesel. Meanwhile, the Gulf Coast can guzzle gas for just $3.392 and diesel for $3.793 per gallon.
