Professional truck drivers are paying about a nickel less per gallon for diesel than they were a year ago.

WASHINGTON — The average on-highway gallon of diesel was up one tenth of one cent to $2.966 for the week ending February 4, according to the Energy Information Administration of the Department of Energy.

The increase was fueled by a 3.3 cent a gallon jump in the Midwest, likely the result of the extremely cold temperatures that struck that section of the country the previous week.

All other regions of the country showed a decline, led by a 2.8 cent a gallon drop in the Rocky Mountain states.

The price for the week ending February 4 is 12 cents a gallon lower than the comparable week in 2017.
