Gas prices stayed steady in the most recent week, according to an Energy Information Administration report released Monday.

The national average price for regular gasoline clocked in at $3.704 per gallon Monday, the exact same as a week ago. However, compared to this time last year, gas prices have increased a steep $0.208. While the national average didn't budge from last week, regions did see some volatility. The Midwest saw the largest per-gallon decline ($0.022), while West Coast prices added on $0.025 per gallon.
