The average price of diesel fuel nationwide climbed 3.2 cents to $2.528 a gallon after a four-week decrease, according to US Department of Energy information.
This drop left trucking’s main fuel $2.075 below the same week in 2008, when the price was $4.603, its second week of decline from the $4.764 record set July 14, 2008.
Between June 22 and July 20, diesel fuel’s price dropped 12 cents. Before that, it rose 43.1 cents in seven consecutive weeks of gains.
