DSC_0931The price of diesel fuel fell for the fourth week in a row in the United States as part of an overall decline in fuel prices.

The price of a gallon of diesel fuel at the pump was down $0.01.1 to $2.859, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. That price is $1.060 cheaper than in the same period in 2014.

With the exception of New England, which saw an increase of $0.012, and the West Coast (without California), up $0.006, diesel prices fell in every region of the country.

Meanwhile, the average price per gallon for gasoline was down by $0.023 to $2.812, according to the EIA, a price that is $0.892 cheaper than in the same period last year.

Gasoline prices, which were up on average over $0.05 last week, fell in most of the country although three regions – the West Coast (without California), the Rocky Mountains, and New England – saw modest increases, with increases of $0.039, $0.003, and $0.018 respectively.

The West Coast without California saw a $0.039 increase to $3.069, the Rocky Mountain region increased $0.003 to $2.788, and New England saw a $0.018 increase to $2.806.
