For the second consecutive week, U.S. diesel fuel prices increased in nearly every region. The New England region experienced the only decline in the United States, with a $0.004 per gallon decrease. All other regions experienced increases, with the West Coast less California experiencing the largest jump at $0.049 per gallon more than last week but $0.220 less than a year ago.
Despite the weekly increase in prices, national diesel costs are generally continuing to decline year-over-year. Diesel prices in the U.S. are $0.024 per gallon more than a week ago but $0.066 per gallon less than a year ago.
