The ProMiles.com report released on Aug. 7, showed the national diesel price average on Monday was $4.137 per gallon, an increase 9.5 cents from last week.
ProMiles produces a report that is similar to one published weekly by the federal Energy Information Administration. A key difference between the two reports is the type and number of fueling stations used to calculate the averages. While ProMiles uses its direct feed from thousands of truck stops to develop the averages, EIA surveys 400 truck stops and convenience stores nationwide. The EIA report is also the average price of diesel for the previous week.
The starkest price jumps came in the West Coast (30.1 cents) and California (25.1 cents) regions. Also up by double digits were the Midwest, Rocky Mountain and West Coast without California regions.
The only price drops came from the Central Atlantic and Gulf Coast regions.
The Gulf Coast also reported the lowest average ($3.846) of any region this week.
