Diesel prices continue to drop

Average U.S. diesel prices continued to fall this week, down 1.4 cents to $2.870, compared to last week’s $2.884, according to data tracked by the Energy Information Administration (EIA). That price is $1.012 per gallon cheaper compared to the same week in 2014.

Diesel prices decreased in every region of the country this week, with prices holding steady in the West Coast without California at $3.001. Five regions continue to break the $3 per gallon mark:

  • The West Coast including California, down 2 cents to $3.101;

  • New England, down 3 tenths of a cent to $3.073;

  • The West Coast without California holding steady at $3.001.

Average U.S. retail pump prices for gasoline increased by 5.5 cents this week to at $2.835 per gallon, the agency noted.  According to EIA, that is 85 cents cheaper compared to the same week last year.

Gasoline prices increased in every region of the U.S., with the exception of the West Coast including California, which saw a 4.3 cent drop to $3.334. Similar to the last couple weeks, the two regions above the $3-per-gallon mark are the West Coast including California and the West Coast without California, EIA said.
