The national average price of a gallon of diesel fell three-tenths of a cent in the week ending Monday, June 19, managing to remain below $3 for another week. Diesel cost $2.915 for the week, 60 cents more than the same week last year, the U.S. Department of Energy reported.

Prices fell in every region except the Lower Atlantic, where they increased by a tenth of a cent to $2.867, and the Gulf Coast, where they rose by a little more than a penny to $2.859, the highest of the year in that region. Despite a drop of more than 3 cents, California still had the highest diesel prices at $3.185 per gallon.
