The national average price for a gallon of unleaded gasoline increased 2.5 cents to $2.162 for the week ending April 25, as the fuel has seen incremental hikes heading into the summer driving season, according to federal data.

Gasoline is now 40.8 cents lower than it was a year ago, and the average price increased in nine regions tracked by the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

The price fell most sharply in the Midwest (4 cents to $2.097) and Rocky Mountain region (3.8 cents to $2.116). Gasoline was essentially flat in the West Coast and Gulf Coast regions.

Among states, only California and Hawaii gasoline is above $2 per gallon at $2.773 and $2.578 respectively. There are now 13 states with gasoline under $2. Texas now has the lowest average price at $1.904.

Meanwhile, the average price of diesel increased 3.3 cents to $2.198. Diesel is now 61.3 cents lower than a year ago.
