Diesel edged up 0.2 cent to $4.159 a gallon, its sixth straight weekly increase, while gasoline rose for a 10th week, the Department of Energy said.
Gasoline rose 3.7 cents to $3.784 a gallon, DOE said Monday following its weekly survey of filling stations. Gas has jumped 53 cents in the past 10 weeks.
The diesel price tops last week’s as the highest since August 2008, when it was at $4.207, DOE records showed.
Monday’s diesel increase is the smallest in the past six — in the previous three weeks, trucking’s main fuel had jumped 23 cents.
Diesel is now 10.8 cents over the same week last year, compared with last week’s price, which was 19.7 cents over the same week a year ago. Gasoline is now 6.3 cents higher than a year ago.
