The national average retail price of a gallon of diesel fell another 3 cents for the week ending Monday, Nov. 28 to $2.479. That’s 36 cents more than in the same week of 2004, but a far cry from the $3-plus record prices of October.
The average price for the week dropped in every region tracked by the U.S. Department of Energy. The biggest drop, 6 cents, was in the Rockies; the smallest, a penny, was in the Central Atlantic states. The highest average diesel price was in New England at $2.619; the lowest was in the Lower Atlantic at $2.394.
