On-highway diesel prices were down 2.0 cents per gallon today — to $3.849 — compared with the $3.869 per gallon truckers were paying at the pump last week.

All 10 reporting regions of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Energy Information Administration (EIA) were down, with the West Coast less California sector down 2.9 cents over the week prior and the West Coast and Midwest reporting sectors down 2.3 cents from the week before.

All reporting regions except for California were below the magic $4-a-gallon mark, with California diesel selling for $4.008 a gallon, down 1.7 cents from the $4.025 truckers traveling in California were paying last week.

Oil has been inching up in fits and starts during the past week but rarely staying up long enough to impact diesel prices very much. At least thus far.

And lest diesel prices of today seem like “the new normal,” it should be noted that the national on-highway price is still 6.8 cents above what diesel was selling for this time a year ago.
