WASHINGTON — The average on-highway retail price of a gallon of diesel declined another 2 cents a gallon to $3.007 for the week ending February 26, according to the Energy Information Administration of the Department of Energy.
It’s the third consecutive week the price has gone down.
The declines have totaled 7.9 cents.
The largest declines were in the Lower Atlantic region (down 3.3 cents a gallon) and the East Coast (down 2.5 cents a gallon).
Only California showed an increase, and that was only two-tenths of a penny increase to $3.660 a gallon.
The only less than positive number is the fact that the price for the week ending February 26 is 43 cents a gallon higher than one year ago.
