WASHINGTON — The average retail on-highway price of a gallon of diesel dropped two tenths of one cent to $3.078 for the week ending April 1, according to the Energy Information Administration of the Department of Energy.

Nine of the U.S. regions posted declines with the largest being 1.8 cents in the New England states (Rhode Island, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine).

Had it not been for a 3.3 cent increase in the Rocky Mountain states (Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, Idaho and Montana) the decrease would be been larger.

The April 1 price is 3.6 cents higher than one year ago.
