Diesel drops $0.02 per gallon.

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 $3.547 per gallon on Monday, up $0.035 from a week ago but $0.149 below the same time last year. West Coast prices headed the highest this past week (+$0.055), while the Rocky Mountain region saw a slight $0.018 uptick. 

While gas prices headed higher, diesel prices took a dip, with a $0.018 decrease over the past week to $4.003 per gallon. This latest price tag puts diesel $0.044 per gallon below the same time last year. West Coast diesel dipped the most (-$0.022), while Gulf Coast prices fell just $0.011. 

At these latest prices, the West Coast pays the prettiest penny for gasoline ($3.81) and the East Coast doles out $4.138 for diesel. On the flip side, the Gulf Coast can guzzle gas for just $3.283 and diesel for $3.803 per gallon.
