Diesel Prices Drop Again
August 4, 2008
The national average price of a gallon of diesel fell significantly for the third week in a row, falling more than 10 cents to $4.502.
That's according to weekly average figures published each Monday by the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Those figures showed prices dropped 10.1 cents per gallon from last week's $4.603, which in turn was more than 11 cents lower than the week before.
The highest average was found in the New England region, at $4.735; the lowest in the Midwest at $4.419.
This week's average is still $1.604 more than it was a year ago.
