National average diesel fuel prices were $2.37 per gallon, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA). This represents a $0.75 drop from the same time last year, but less than a half-cent drop from the previous week.

The opposite is true for gasoline prices, which are witnessing a small increase. The AAA noted that the gasoline price increase is due, in part, to an increase in motorists getting back on the road again. 

According to the AAA, the highest recorded diesel price was $4.845 per gallon in July of 2008. 

So far in 2020, a peak of $3.08 occured the week of January 6 and diesel prices have declined since then.

Current average diesel prices by region, according to the EIA are: 

  • East Coast: $2.50
  • Midwest: $2.23
  • Gulf Coast: $2.17
  • Rocky Mountains: $2.34
  • West Coast: $2.90
