On-highway diesel fuel prices remained unchanged in the U.S. this week, according to our sister site, Aggregates Manager [2].

The plateau in prices follows five consecutive weeks of declining diesel costs.

The figures come from the Energy Information Administration (EIA), which delayed its fuel report last week [3] due to the 16-day government shutdown [4] that ended last Wednesday [5].

This week, diesel prices varied per region.

The greatest decrease this week occurred in the Rocky Mountain region, which experienced a $0.014-per-gallon fall from last week’s prices and a $0.368-per-gallon year-over-year decline.

The greatest increase occurred in the West Coast less California region, where prices rose $0.015 per gallon over a week ago but fell $0.241 per gallon over a year ago.

The only region with no weekly change was the New England region. Costs in this region have declined $0.211 per gallon since a year ago.

Overall, national prices remained at $3.886 per gallon this week week, and they are $0.230 per gallon lower than a year ago.
