Diesel, Gas Prices Increase
Monday, 03 August 2009 00:00

The average per-gallon price of both diesel fuel and gasoline rose again last week, the Department of Energy reported Monday.

The average price of diesel fuel gained 2.2 cents to $2.55 a gallon, the Department of Energy said Monday. This was diesel’s second price increase in as many weeks.

The increase was led by a 4.3-cent jump in California to $2.763. DOE breaks out that state as a subset of its western region, where diesel rose 2.6 cents to $2.643.

The Rocky Mountain region was the only area where diesel prices fell, sliding 0.3 cent to $2.537.

The increase left diesel prices $1.952 below the same week last year.

Gasoline prices rose 5.4 cents last week to $2.557 a gallon, also a second straight weekly gain.

Both diesel and gas had fallen for four straight weeks prior to the upturn two weeks ago.

Monday’s gas price is $1.3232 below same week last year.
