The U.S. diesel average rose 3.2 cents to $2.021 last week for its third increase in a row.

All regions posted higher prices except New England, where trucking’s main fuel fell by seven-tenths of a cent to $2.147.

Diesel, however, remained 92.3 cents cheaper than a year ago, when the price was $2.944, DOE said after its March 7 survey of fueling stations.

Also, average prices for diesel remained below $2 in the Lower Atlantic at $1.979, Midwest at $1.983, Gulf Coast with the lowest overall at $1.907 and the Rocky Mountain area at $1.927.

California again had the highest price, $2.316.

DOE also reported the average price of regular gasoline rose 5.8 cents to $1.841, but the fuel is 64.6 cents cheaper than a year earlier.
