The national average price of gasoline rose 1.7 cents to $3.596 per gallon for the week ending April 7, according to federal data.

Gasoline has now climbed higher for 10 consecutive weeks, starting in early February, mostly due to higher ethanol prices. It still remains lower than the same week from a year ago by 1.2 cents, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

For the week, the price of gasoline rose in seven of the 10 regions tracked, including 4.9 cents in the Gulf Coast and 4.1 cents in the Lower Atlantic regions. It fell 1.1 cents in the Midwest. Gasoline is now above the $3.50 per gallon level in 32 of the 50 states. It now costs above $4 per gallon in California and Hawaii, according to the AAA's Daily Fuel Gauge Report.

Meanwhile, the average price of diesel fuel fell 1.6 cents to $3.959 per gallon for the week. Diesel fuel is now 1.8 cents lower than it was a year ago.
