Bruce Harmon/Trans Pixs

Diesel’s national average retail price dipped 0.7¢ to $3.952 a gallon, its fifth straight decline, while gasoline rose for the 10th straight week, the Department of Energy reported.

Gas gained 5.5 cents to $3.651 a gallon, its highest level since July 22, DOE said April 14 following its weekly survey of filling stations.

Trucking’s main fuel has dropped almost 7 cents since hitting $4.021 on March 10, its highest pump price in a year.

Gasoline has jumped almost 36 cents in its 10 increases, DOE records showed.

Diesel is a penny higher than it was in the corresponding week last year, while gas is 10.9 cents over a year ago.

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