Gas prices at most stations along the east coast of the U.S. increased between 2¢ and 5¢ per gallon for the week ending January 6, 2013, according to the latest survey from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Gas prices in the Lower Atlantic states and along the Gulf Coasts increased between 5¢ and 6¢ per gallon.
However, diesel fuel prices largely bucked the trend of increasing gas prices, except in the Central Atlantic states, where prices went up by about 2-cents.
The EIA is a branch of the U.S. Department of Energy, and they conduct their survey each week, releasing the figures they have gathered every Monday.
