How does the energy difference between smaller nuclear charge gets smaller in MO Diagrams?

The s and p states (subshells) are different, and the larger the nuclear charge the larger the energy difference between the s and p states within a given shell.

Therefore the opposite occurs for decreasing nuclear charge.
