On-highway diesel fuel prices have continued to increase in most regions of the United States this week, our sister site, Aggregates Manager, reported [3].

This is the second consecutive week of nearly nationwide increases.

The New England region, the only region with declining prices, experienced a decrease of $0.004 per gallon.

The largest increase occurred in the West Coast less California region, which jumped $0.049 per gallon since last week [4].

Despite the increases, diesel fuel prices are still down from last year. Though the U.S. experienced a $0.024 per gallon increase this week, nationwide diesel fuel prices are down $0.066 per gallon year-over-year.
