The report released on April 24, showed the national diesel price average on Monday was $4.20 per gallon, down seven-tenths of a cent 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 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.

Most regions were down led by a 3.1-cent decline in the California region. The East Coast and Lower Atlantic dropped by 2.2 cents each, while New England and the Gulf Coast fell by just under 2 cents.

The Midwest was up by that same margin (1.9 cents). The Rocky Mountain and West Coast less California regions also reported increases but by less than 1 cent.

With a price per gallon of $3.802, the Gulf Coast region reported the lowest average of any region this week.
