The average price of a gallon of diesel fuel nationwide climbed for a third straight week, rising 8.2 cents to $2.879 a gallon, according to US Department of Energy information.
It was the highest national average price for trucking’s main fuel since Nov 10, 2008, and put it 56.5 cents higher than the same week in 2009.
This rise was the largest since a 9.6-cent spike October 26, and diesel has risen 15.3 cents in three weeks after an 8.2-cent decline over the previous seven.
The New England region currently has the most expensive diesel at $3.068 per gallon. The least expensive diesel is in the Rocky Mountain region with $2.814 per gallon.
