The national average price of a gallon of diesel moved up another 2 cents from last week, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. The price was at $2.918 for the week ending Monday, July 10, an increase of 51 cents compared to the same week last year.

Prices increased in every region except New England, where they fell only by one-tenth of a cent; and California, where the price continued to drop slightly by sixth-tenths of a cent. However, at $3.113 per gallon, the state continues to pay the most of any other.

The Midwest saw the greatest change in the cost of diesel, rising by more than 3 cents to $2.919 per gallon from $2.887. Prices in that region have been climbing quickly over the past two weeks, rising by 10 cents; other regions have seen fluctuations of only 2 to 5 cents.
