The national average retail price of a gallon of diesel fell almost one-cent to $2.792 during the week ending Monday, June 11, compared to $2.799 the previous week. The total was more than 12 cents lower than the same week in 2006.

Diesel prices fell in six regions tracked by the Department of Energy. The Rocky Mountain Region saw the largest drop – more than two cents to $2.937, compared to $2.958 the week before, but the region still paid the second-highest price in the country.

Drivers on the West Coast paid the most of any region at $2.941, a one-cent increase from the prior week. The Gulf Coast had the least expensive diesel for the week at $2.742, nearly a one-cent decrease from last week’s $2.749 price.
