Diesel dipped 1.6 cents to $3.959 a gallon, its fourth straight decline and fifth in six weeks, while gasoline rose for the ninth straight week, the Department of Energy reported April 7.

Gasoline rose 1.7 cents to $3.596, DOE said following its weekly survey of filling stations. The price has jumped 30.4 cents in the past two months.

Average U.S. diesel prices have fallen a combined 6.2 cents since hitting $4.021 on March 10, its highest level in a year.

Trucking’s main fuel is 1.8 cents below its price in the corresponding week last year, while gasoline is 1.2 cents below a year ago.

Each week, DOE surveys about 400 diesel filling stations and 800 gasoline stations to compile national average prices.
