Diesel prices are still 5.9 cents above what they were this time a year ago, and three reporting sectors — New England, the West Coast and California — were reporting prices above $4 a gallon.

On-highway diesel prices were down 0.6 cents today to $3.909 a gallon compared with $3.915 last week, mirroring oil price declines of several weeks ago.

Seven out of the Energy Information Administration’s 10 reporting sectors showed lower prices from the week prior, but truckers traveling through California, the Rocky Mountain sector and the West Coast region saw prices on the upswing.

No doubt, diesel in most regions will be on the upswing soon as it follows oil’s price rebound of late.
