Diesel prices dropped significantly for the week ending Monday, Sept. 18, decreasing by more than 14 cents from the previous week. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, the average price of a gallon of diesel was $2.713, nearly 2 cents less than the same week of 2005.

The average price dropped in all regions, with the Rocky Mountains feeling the most relief. Prices there fell by more than 18 cents, from $3.236 to $3.052, but people in that region still are paying the most for diesel.

The Central Atlantic region saw the smallest decline, though prices there still fell by more than 11 cents; drivers there now are paying $2.844 per gallon of diesel. The Midwest has the lowest diesel prices after a 16-cent drop to $2.624 per gallon.
