Meanwhile, the national average for diesel declined 2.9 cents in the last week and stands at $4.86. Gas Buddy says gas prices continue to surge on the West Coast and Great Lakes. But at the same time areas of the Northeast and Gulf Coast continued to see declines. Some West Coast states saw prices rise 35 to 55 cents per gallon in the last week because of refinery issues.
