National on-highway diesel prices were down 2.2 cents Monday, with truckers paying on average $3.733 a gallon at the pump, according to the Energy Information Administration (EIA) of the U.S. Energy Department.
Not only were prices down in all of the EIA’s 10 reporting sectors, all regions showed diesel selling below $4 a gallon, no doubt a welcome sight for truckers and carriers alike.
In some areas, diesel saw significant drops in price: New England reported a 3.2-cent drop to $3.848 a gallon and diesel in the Central Atlantic area saw a slide of 2.7 cents a gallon to $3.830.
California, which tends to sell diesel for above $4 a gallon, finally succumbed and was selling diesel for $3.998 a gallon.
Diesel prices have been falling since July 14 except for prices on Sept. 1 and 8, when the price stayed the same. Click to continue reading..
