National on-highway diesel prices ticked up by 1.3 cents to $3.913, compared to $3.900 last week, according to the Energy Information Administration (EIA) of the U.S. Department of Energy.

All 10 reporting regions showed higher prices from a week ago and a drop from a year ago.

Truckers traveling through the Rocky Mountain and Gulf Coast regions saw the smallest increase, only 0.7 cents, bringing this week to $3.927 and $3.829, respectively. California truckers saw the most drastic increase with 2.2 cents, bringing the price to $4.156.

This is the second week in a row that diesel is on the rise. On Aug. 12, it dipped to $3.896.

Diesel follows oil at a slower pace. Today, the U.S. benchmark oil closed at $105.92 a barrel for October, falling 50 cents, according to an Associated Press article.
