Diesel Prices at Nation’s Truck Stops Average $2.854 Per Gallon

All regions of the United States experienced increases in diesel fuel prices last week, according to figures released Monday by the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

The average price of a gallon of diesel was $2.854 across the nation — which is up 4.3 cents per gallon for the period, but still $1.11 less than a year ago last week.

The cheapest diesel in the country could be found in Midwest states, where the average price was $2.715 per gallon. Not surprisingly, the highest pump prices were in California, where a gallon of diesel cost $3.227 — a 7.1-cent per gallon increase over the week before.
