WASHINGTON — The on-highway average retail price of a gallon of diesel jumped another 2.6 cents a gallon for the week ending Feb. 10, according to the Energy Information Administration of the Department of Energy.

The price went up in every region of the country except the West Coast less California, which decline one-tenth of a penny.

The national price increase was the result of substantial increases in parts of the country which has suffered the worst from the brutal winter precipitation and cold temperatures — Central Atlantic states (up 8.2 cents) and the New England states (up 6.4 cents).

This week’s price is still 12.7 cents lower than the same week last year.
