The Energy Information Administration (EIA) said that diesel and gasoline prices are rising up this week in the U.S.
EIA reported that the average retail pump prices for diesel reached $3.975 per gallon, which compared to the same week in 2013, is 12.4 cents higher. An interesting fact remains that even though diesel prices marked some decline along the East Coast, the region still sells the most expensive diesel in the country.
The West Coast and California, on the other side, experienced a significant jump in diesel prices, up 2.5 cents to $4.055 per gallon and 3.8 cents to $4.140 per gallon, respectively. However, EIA stated that California saw a relatively smaller increase – 9/10ths of a penny to $3.954 per gallon.
This week, gasoline retail pump prices also increased 3 cents to $3.713 per, which is 19.3 cents higher compared to the same week last year.
EIA said that it accounted the increases to “seasonal trends.”
