It’s been more than three months since the average price for a gallon of diesel fuel increased, but that’s what happened last week, with prices averaging 2 cents per gallon more, according to figures released Tuesday by the U.S. Energy Information Administration.
The average price for diesel at the nation’s truckstops was $2.534 per gallon, up from the $2.514 cost last week. And while that’s still $1.28 per gallon cheaper than a year ago last week, prices were up in all regions of the country, with the exception of the New England states were prices were down a miniscule penny per gallon.
