WASHINGTON — The average on-highway price of a gallon of diesel dropped again this week, marking the fifth consecutive weekly decline.

The Energy Information Administration of the Department of Energy said the price for the week ending June 24 was $3.838, a decline of three-tenths of one cent.

The price is the lowest since the week ending July 30, 2012, when the price was $3.796.

This week’s price is still 16 cents higher than the price one year ago.

Regions and California were almost evenly split in terms of increases and decreases.

California and five regions saw prices rise; five regions saw prices decline, led by the Midwest and Rocky Mountain regions, both of which declined 12 cents.
