Diesel prices continue to fall, down 2.2 cents

The average U.S. retail pump price for diesel fell 2.2 cents in the Nov. 21 report by the Energy Information Administration (EIA), to $2.421 per gallon. That’s 2.4 cents cheaper than this time last year.

Every region saw a price decline, paced by the Rocky Mountains, where a gallon was 3.7 cents cheaper ($2.455), and California, down 3.3 cents ($2.804).

Prices fell three cents or so in the Midwest, coming in at $2.356. Prices on the East Coast fell a little over a cent, with New England coming in at $2.471, $2.549 in the Central Atlantic, and $2.355 in the Lower Atlantic.

On the West Coast, less California, diesel posted 2-cent drop to $2.637 from last week’s $2.657. Though California’s price fell 3.3 cents this week, it remains the highest price in the lower 48 states.

Diesel was down 2 cents on the Gulf Coast to $2.296 from $2.316, still the lowest price for a gallon of diesel in the country.

The national average price for gasoline fell 2.9 cents for the week to $2.155.
