While gas prices stayed relatively steady, diesel prices increased $0.031 over the past week to $3.904 per gallon. Despite the increase, this latest price tag still puts diesel $0.023 per gallon below the same time last year. East Coast prices made a large $0.05 move up, while Gulf Coast prices barely budged, adding just $0.001.
