The U.S. diesel average retail price was unchanged at $3.886 a gallon last week, after declining for five straight weeks, the Department of Energy reported Oct. 21.
Gasoline, meanwhile, nudged up 0.6 cent to $3.36 a gallon, a reversal from six consecutive drops, DOE’s Energy Information Administration said.
The five-week diesel decline has lowered the average a cumulative 9.5 cents a gallon. The six-week drop for gasoline totaled 25.4 cents.
Trucking’s main fuel and gasoline are less than they were a year ago. Then, diesel was 23 cents a gallon higher and gasoline cost 32.7 cents more.
