The national average retail price of a gallon of diesel remained unchanged at $2.889 during the week ending Monday, July 23. That price was 5.7 cents lower than the same week last year, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
Diesel prices remained mostly static in all regions tracked by DOE, with both minor increases and decreases reported. The biggest increase, 3 cents, was recorded on the West Coast, where truckers paid $3.061 per gallon, the most of any region; truckers in California — which DOE tracks separately — paid even more, $3.158, an increase of 1.1 cents.
The biggest decrease, 1.9 cents, was seen in the Lower Atlantic area, where drivers paid $2.815 per gallon. That price tied the Gulf Coast for the nation’s least expensive diesel.
