Fuel Prices Climbing


Fuel Prices Climbing

While both the federal Energy Information Administration and mileage-tracking software company ProMiles each report increases in the national U.S. average price for a gallon of diesel fuel on Monday compared to last week, the two indexes vary in size of the increase. 

According to the federal EIA, the average cost for a gallon of diesel fuel nationwide on Monday, Oct. 15, was up nearly a penny.

However, ProMiles reports the U.S. average being up more than 4 cents.

In addition, while ProMiles reports prices in the West Coast without California being more than 4 cents lower, the EIA reports no change.

Following are the average prices by region as reported by the EIA for Monday:

  • U.S. – $3.394, up nine-tenths of a cent.
  • East Coast – $3.382, up 2.2 cents.
  • New England – $3.361, up 1.7 cents.
  • Central Atlantic – $3.544, up 1.3 cents.
  • Lower Atlantic – $3.272, up 2.9 cents.
  • Midwest – $3.351, no change.
  • Gulf Coast – $3.172, up three-tenths of a cent.
  • Rocky Mountain – $3.40, up 1 cent.
  • West Coast – $3.88, up 3.3 cents.
  • West Coast less California – $3.591, up 3.3 cents.
  • California – $4.109, down one-fifth of a cent.
