WASHINGTON — Diesel prices across the U.S. have been over $3.00 a gallon this year in some regions, but the U.S. average had not been that high since 2008. Today’s U.S. weekly retail on-highway diesel price was up 7.6 cents from last week to $3.015 per gallon, according to the Energy Information Administration.
The only regions below $3.00 this week were the Lower Atlantic ($2.986); Midwest ($2.989) and the Gulf Coast ($2.978).
The highest prices could be found in the Central Atlantic region at $3.136 per gallon and the West Coast at $3.113 per gallon.
California’s price, which is typically one of the highest, was $3.147 per gallon.
