The ProMiles.com report released on Nov. 14, showed the national diesel price average on Monday was $5.386 per gallon, up from $5.35 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 in order to calculate its averages. While ProMiles uses its direct feed from thousands of truck stops to develop its averages, EIA surveys 400 truck stops and convenience stores nationwide. The EIA report is also the average price of diesel for the previous week.

Over half of the region reported an increase. New England’s average diesel price surged by almost 15 cents, the Central Atlantic was up 12.4 cents, and the East Coast was up nearly 10 cents,

Decreases came in the western regions with the California region seeing the largest drop (3.6 cents).

The lowest average regional price is $4.843 per gallon is in the Gulf Coast.
