After five weeks of declining prices, the U.S. average price for a gallon of diesel climbed for the first time since May 2, increasing 1.4 cent to $3.954 for the week ended Monday, June 13. That price is $1.026 higher than the same week last year, according to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Energy Information Administration.

Prices rose in all regions tracked by DOE except for the Rocky Mountains, which saw a 2.7-cent decline, and New England, where the price fell 1.8 cents. Elsewhere, the largest gain, 2.2 cents, was found in California, where prices remained the nation’s highest at $4.245. The nation’s cheapest diesel, $3.896, was found on the Gulf Coast.
