On-highway diesel fuel prices have continued to increase in most regions of the United States this week, our sister site, Aggregates Manager, reported.
This is the second consecutive week of nearly nationwide increases.
The New England region, the only region with declining prices, experienced a decrease of $0.004 per gallon.
The largest increase occurred in the West Coast less California region, which jumped $0.049 per gallon since last week.
Despite the increases, diesel fuel prices are still down from last year. Though the U.S. experienced a $0.024 per gallon increase this week, nationwide diesel fuel prices are down $0.066 per gallon year-over-year.
