Diesel Rises 0.1¢ to $3.92 a Gallon

Daniel Acker/Bloomberg News

The U.S. retail diesel average was all but flat this week, rising just 0.1 cent a gallon from the week before to $3.92, the U.S. Department of Energy said on June 30.

The report marks the second straight increase after seven consecutive declines, and leaves trucking’s main fuel 10.3 cents a gallon more expensive than a year ago.

Gas was unchanged from last week, remaining at $3.704, DOE’s Energy Information Administration said. The current price is 20.8 cents a gallon more expensive than a year ago.

The price of crude oil futures contracts on the New York Mercantile Exchange has dipped in each of the last three days, closing at $105.37 a barrel on June 30.
