On-highway diesel fuel prices rose $0.022 per gallon in the U.S. this week, according to our sister site, Aggregates Manager.

The increasing costs follow four consecutive weeks of falling diesel prices.

This week, diesel prices also rose in most regions of the U.S. Two regions saw no change.

The greatest increase this week occurred in the Midwest region, which experienced a $0.035-per-gallon fall from last week’s prices, though the region saw a $0.194-per-gallon year-over-year decline.

The only regions in which diesel costs remained unchanged were the West Coast region and the West Coast less California region, which remain at $3.954 per gallon and $3.872 per gallon, respectively. Diesel prices in the West Coast region are down $0.161 per gallon for the year, while costs in the West Coast less California region have decreased $0.198 per gallon in the past year.

Overall, national prices rose $0.022 per gallon this week to $3.844, and they are $0.190 per gallon lower than a year ago.
