The national average price of a gallon of diesel stayed pretty much the same in the week ending Monday, May 29, dropping by only sixth-tenths of a cent to $2.882, the U.S. Department of Energy reported.

The slight drop marks the second consecutive week that prices have decreased, yet diesel still costs 72 cents more than it did in the same week last year.

The price fell slightly in all regions except the Central Atlantic, where it held steady at $2.987, and the Rocky Mountains, where it increased by 2 cents.

Once again, drivers on the West Coast paid the most for diesel, the average price being $3.161. California drivers, in particular, paid $3.227 per gallon.
