Diesel Prices Continue to Fall

The national diesel average sank again this week, decreasing around seven cents to $4.294. 

Price drops were reported in every region of the country by the Energy Information Administration, including three areas with double-digit tumbles. 

Prices in the Rocky Mountain region dipped the most — around 13 cents — with a gallon of diesel now costing $4.356. 

On the West Coast, fleets paid nearly 12 cents less per gallon, dropping the average to $5.139. On the Gulf Coast, meanwhile, a drop of about 10 cents left the per-gallon price at $3.927. 

The East Coast’s average fell around seven cents to $4.22, while the Midwest’s per-gallon price now rests at $4.308 after a decline of around two cents. 

Overall, the price of diesel is $1.019 cheaper than a year ago at this time.
