Just over half of the nation’s 50 states saw gasoline prices rise last week, pulling the national average back up for the time being due to big jumps in the Great Lakes and continued increases in New England and mid-Atlantic states, according to Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy.

“For now, the rise in the Great Lakes, brought on by tight supply, has already started to ease, and declines should start again,” De Haan said. “In the northeastern U.S., prices are likely to inch up a bit more. National diesel supply remains tight, but supplies of diesel did see a slight rise last week.”

The majority of stations, especially away from the East Coast and Northeast, should have very few issues with diesel supply, though some stations in those regions could see diesel delivery times slip.
