The U.S. average price of a gallon of diesel declined after three weeks of increases, albeit slightly, falling 0.5 cent to $3.887 during the week ended Monday, Nov. 7, according to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Energy Information Administration. That price is 77.1 cents higher than the same week last year.
Prices in regions tracked by DOE saw a mix of increases and decreases. The increases were led by a 5.0-cent jump in California, where prices remained the nation’s most expensive at $4.213. The smallest increase was 0.2 cent for the overall West Coast, where prices climbed only 0.2 cent to $4.109.
The biggest decrease, 2.0 cents, was found in the Lower Atlantic, where prices fell to $3.816. The lowest decrease, 0.3 cent, was found in the Midwest, where prices fell to $3.863. The nation’s least expensive diesel was in the Gulf Coast region, where the average price fell 1.2 cent to $3.796.
