Truckers and other diesel users saw another slight drop in fuel prices this week as the national average price per gallon dropped less than a cent for the week ending Monday, Aug. 28. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, the average price was $3.027, roughly 44 cents more than in the same week last year.

Three U.S. regions enjoyed decreases — the Midwest, the Rocky Mountains and the West Coast. The Gulf Coast remained unchanged at $2.923 per gallon, while the East Cost incurred a slight uptick — from $2.953 to $2.955 per gallon. Drivers in the Rocky Mountains still are paying the most for diesel, at $3.346 per gallon.
