The national average diesel price has risen 21 cents in the last month after a slow but steady fall in the three months prior. The price is 16.1 cents higher than the same week in 2012.

The price jumped more than 9 cents in the week ended Feb. 4. Average prices in all regions continued to surge, too, with big jumps coming in the Rocky Mountain Region, though it still hast he nation’s lowest average price.
