Fuel Prices Rising

Fuel prices remain on the rise

Both diesel and gasoline prices continued to climb this week in the U.S., according to data tracked by the Energy Information Administration (EIA), with the agency pointing to “season trends” as the reason for the upward trend for gasoline prices.

Average U.S. retail pump prices for diesel ticked up 4/10ths of a penny this week to $3.975 per gallon, EIA reported, which is 12.4 cents per gallon higher compared to the same week in 2013.

Diesel prices registered a decline along the East Coast but not only were those declines small, the East Coast regions remained home to some of the most expensive diesel in the country.
