U.S. on-highway diesel took another jump upwards Feb. 18, going up 5.3 cents to $4.157 compared with $4.104 the week of Feb. 11.

The last time diesel was close to the Feb. 18 price was Oct. 26, 2012, when it was $4.150, and that was the highest it had been for all of last year.

The $4.157 price is 19.7 cents more than it was at this same time a year ago. And as was the case last week, every reporting region of the Energy Information Administration of the U.S. Department of Energy turned up with diesel higher than it was the week prior.

Diesel and gas prices weren’t reported until Feb. 19 because Monday was a government holiday observed for President’s Day.

The Gulf Coast reporting region saw diesel go up a whopping 7.1 cents (to $4.068 compared with $3.997 a week ago) and both the New England and Rocky Mountain reporting regions saw it go up 6.8 cents over the previous week ($4.266 and $3.964, respectively).
