Diesel prices down 1.7 cents this week

Diesel prices are down again this week, according to the most recent data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA).

This week, diesel is down 1.7 cents to $2.476 from last week’s $2.493. This week’s price is $1.279 cheaper than the same week last year, EIA said.

Diesel dipped in every region this week – with all regions remaining under the $3-per-gallon mark. The most significant drop was a 3.6-cent decrease in the Rocky Mountain region – down to $2.486 from last week’s $2.522.

Average U.S. retail pump prices for gasoline were down slightly, slipping by only 5 tenths of a cent to $2.322 from last week’s $2.327, according to EIA. That is $1.032-per-gallon less than the same week last year.

Gas prices are down in all but two regions this week – the Lower Atlantic, which is up 6 tenths of a cent to $2.113 from last week’s $2.107, and the Midwest, which increased 5.4 cents to $2.325 from last week’s $2.271. All regions remain under the $3-per-gallon mark.
