The national average retail price of diesel fuel fell for the second consecutive week, dipping 0.9 cents to $3.162 a gallon, according to US Department of Energy information.
Diesel’s decline came after the previous week’s 1.3-cent drop to $3.171, which followed the $3.184 price a week before that—the highest price in more than than two years. The most recent price left trucking’s main fuel 38.7 cents over the same week in 2009.
California’s price was highest at $3.328 per gallon. The least expensive diesel was along the Gulf Coast at $3.078 per gallon.
