Diesel Prices March Upward — Except for Truckers in New England

Diesel prices rose an average 0.13 cents per gallon in all but one region of the country last week, with prices in New England states falling 0.06 cents, which barely registers on the pump.

A gallon of diesel cost an average $2.128 nationwide last week — which is still nearly 63 cents per gallon less than a year ago last week, according to figures released Monday by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA).

The highest prices — at an average $2.437 per gallon — were found in California and the lowest prices registered at $1.992 in the Gulf Coast states — the only area where the petroleum product remains at under two dollars a gallon.

Shown below are diesel prices by region for the week ending Monday, April 12:

  • East Coast: $2.179 last week, $2.187 this week
  • New England: $2.243 last week, $2.237 this week
  • Central Atlantic: $2.296 last week, $2.301 this week
  • Lower Atlantic: $2.077 last week, $2.090 this week
  • Midwest: $2.065 last week, $2.082 this week
