After a week of decreases across the board, U.S. diesel fuel prices jumped in nearly every region this week.
The Gulf Coast region experienced the greatest weekly increase at $0.018 per gallon more than last week and $0.148 per gallon higher than a year ago.
The New England and Rocky Mountain regions experienced the only decreases this week, with prices falling $0.006 per gallon and $0.008 per gallon, respectively. However, year-over-year costs continued to climb in these regions. Diesel fuel prices are $0.125 per gallon higher than a year ago in the New England region and $0.131 higher than a year ago in the Rocky Mountain region.
The average price for diesel in the U.S. this week also rose. Diesel prices in the U.S. are $0.011 per gallon more than a week ago and $0.145 per gallon higher than a year ago.
All prices reflect on-highway diesel fuel costs.
