National on-highway diesel prices were down seven tenths of a penny this week to $3.913 a gallon compared to last week’s $3.920.
In fact, all 10 of the Energy Information Administration’s (EIA) reporting sectors showed at-the-pump prices down from the week prior.
However, compared to what national diesel was selling for last year at this time, today’s price is 8.5 cents higher.
Diesel has followed oil up and down, up and down, on the price seesaw, which is pretty much in line with the fluctuations EIA predicted for much of this year.
Four reporting regions showed diesel prices over the $4-a-gallon threshold: California at $4.135; the West Coast at $4.067; New England at $4.098 and Central Atlantic at $4.069.
Truckers in the Gulf Coast region were paying the least in the nation, with diesel ringing up at $3.802 in those states.
Not surprisingly, they were paying the most in California.
