The national average diesel price fell by nearly the same amount it increased a week ago, falling 9.1 cents to $4.454 a gallon, according to Energy Information Administration data released Oct. 30.


  • Diesel’s most recent price change comes on the heels of a 10.1-cent gain. That was largely due to the price of a gallon shooting up 25 cents in the Midwest because of outages in the 9,800-mile-long Magellan Pipeline system.
  • A gallon of trucking’s main fuel now costs 86.3 cents less than at this time in 2022.
  • Diesel’s average price fell in all 10 regions in EIA’s weekly survey, with five experiencing double-digit declines paced by California (12.6 cents). That dropped the average price for a gallon in that state to below $6 at $5.890. The smallest decline was 1.4 cents in New England.
  • Gasoline dropped by an even 6 cents a gallon nationally; its average price is now $3.473 a gallon.
