The national average price of diesel increased for the ninth consecutive week June 28 when it climbed 1.3 cents to reach $3.30 a gallon, the Energy Information Administration reported.

The increase follows a marginal boost of just one-tenth of a cent last week. Diesel is now 87 cents a gallon more than a year ago.

The price increased in all 10 regions surveyed by EIA, and significantly so in the Rocky Mountain (4 cents), West Coast (3 cents) and West-Coast-Less-California (3.2 cents) regions.

If you're buying regular gasoline, the price there continues to chase diesel, climbing 3.1 cents per gallon this week on the national average to reach $3.091, 91.78 cents a gallon more than a year ago. — Transport Topics
