Echoing oil’s price slide of late, national on-highway diesel prices dropped 1.6 cents a gallon Monday to $3.959 a gallon.

All 10 reporting sectors were down from the prior week of March 31 and the national price is 1.8 cents a gallon below what it was this time a year ago.

The Central Atlantic region was down 3.6 cents a gallon ($4.205), the most of any sector, followed by the Rocky Mountain region, which was down 2.0 cents a gallon to $3.955.

The East Coast reporting region ($4.075), New England ($4.240), the Central Atlantic sector ($4.205) and California ($4.056) were still above the $4-a-gallon mark.

Truckers in the Gulf Coast sector were paying the least for diesel at $3.793 a gallon.

The price of oil has vacillated around $100 a barrel for most of the past month and fell below $101 a barrel Monday following reports that four Libyan oil terminals under militia control could soon open and possibly boost global supplies.
