Prices drop during ULSD transition

Yesterday, most retail pumps nationwide switched from low sulfur diesel to ultra-low sulfur diesel (ULSD) to comply with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regulations

Yesterday, most retail pumps nationwide switched from low sulfur diesel to ultra-low sulfur diesel (ULSD) to comply with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regulations. And the national average price for a gallon of diesel actually fell by the Oct. 15 deadline, the Oil Price Information Service has reported.

On Oct. 15, prices dropped to $2.61, a 0.4-cent drop compared to Oct. 14. Today, prices fell 0.5 cents to $2.605, OPIS said.

The OPIS data confirmed earlier predictions by energy experts that the nationwide transition to ULSD would generally be met with consistent pricing and ample supply.
