National on-highway diesel prices were down eight tenths of a cent Monday to $3.871 a gallon, down from $3.879 last week, although lower prices weren’t the case across all reporting regions of the Energy Information Administration.

Four sectors — the East Coast (up three-tenths of a cent), Central Atlantic (up five tenths of a cent), Lower Atlantic (up three tenths of a cent) and Rocky Mountain reporting sectors (up one tenth of a cent) had inched up from the week prior.

Hopeful economic signs from the European business community and the extended closure of Libyan oil terminals, combined to hike oil prices Monday, which probably will be reflected in diesel prices down the road.
