Diesel prices continue to tumble, according to data tracked by the Energy Information Administration(EIA).
The national average for diesel dropped by 3.5 cents this week to $2.831 per gallon, the agency said – that’s $1.12 cheaper per gallon compared to the same week in 2014.
The only uptick in diesel occurred in New England, EIA noted, where prices jumped one penny to $3.028 per gallon.
New England is also one of only three regions in the country where diesel remains above the $3 per gallon mark, with the others being the Central Atlantic (down 3.7 cents this week to $3.041) and California (down 6.3 cents to $3.027).
The West Coast recorded the biggest one-week dip in diesel prices this week, falling 5.6 cents to $2.886 per gallon. With California removed from the mix, diesel declined 4.7 cents to $2.716 per gallon on the West Coast – the cheapest price for diesel in the nation, according to EIA’s numbers.
