This week marked the the second consecutive increase following more than two months of decline. After this week’s 2.5 cent rise, diesel now sits 7.7 cents higher than the same week last year. Before to the two increases, diesel fuel prices had dropped 14 cents over seven straight declines.
Each week, DOE surveys approximately 350 diesel stations to compile a nationwide snapshot of the average price.
