November 8, 2022

The ProMiles.com report released on Nov. 7, showed the national diesel price average on Monday was $5.35 per gallon, down from $5.359 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.

Half of the regions saw an increase according to the ProMiles report, while the price per gallon for diesel was down in the other half.

The largest difference in any region was an 8.9-cent jump in the New England region. Additionally, a 7.1-cent increase was reported in the Central Atlantic.

An 8.8-cent decrease in the California region was the largest of any region reporting a drop in pricing. The West Coast region was down 7 cents, and the West Coast without California region dropped 4.8 cents.

The lowest average price is $4.852 per gallon in the Gulf Coast.
