Diesel Prices Continue Downward

 

Diesel prices on average continued to go down across the U.S., though that downward slide was tempered by rising prices on the West Coast and California, according to the Energy Information Administration.

The U.S. average went down just one-tenth of a cent, according to the EIA. The largest decrease was in the Lower Atlantic region, where diesel prices per gallon dropped 3.6 cents to $2.404.

That is balanced by the 2.9 cent rise in West Coast states.
